Want to interact with a robot for some hands on, educational fun? Dubuque’s Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium’s summer POPnology exhibit not only offers robotic interaction but also offers opportunities to explore science and technology as part of pop culture in everyday life.
The traveling, Stage Nine Exhibitions’ POPnology exhibit opened Memorial Weekend and runs through Monday, September 4th (Labor Day), offering visitors of all ages a chance to connect with technology in everyday life and pop culture, and even offers a vision of what the future might hold.

The exhibit also presents information on innovators and authors whose imagination and dreams have become today’s reality.
