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. 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.
