Colossal Robotic Hand Grand Opening

Be one of the first to see the newest amazing exhibit at the Science Mill’s outdoor Science & Art Park, a 30-foot-tall stainless steel robotic hand! With a remote joystick mimicking the robot hand, kids can easily operate this exhibit making each of these giant fingers move, much like their own. This exhibit is a powerful, interactive icon of creativity, engineering and design.

The Colossal Robotic Hand is from more than 500 individual stainless steel triangles! Want to know more about the design, building and installation of this massive kinetic sculpture? Science Mill creative director and the brain behind the hand, Zac Zamora, will be available to answer questions Saturday, Feb. 10 from 10am-12pm.

Additionally, visitors can also make a fun working hand with commonly found materials and watch 3D printing of components of prosthetic hands used by the e-NABLE community for those in need of an upper limb assistive device. Plus, explore the museum’s 50+ interactive exhibits and watch a 3D movie.
