Chemical Heritage Foundation

Chemical Heritage Foundation Library - Museum - Center for Scholars
First Friday: Where's My Hoverboard?
First Friday
October 2, 2015 | 5:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.
The movie Back to the Future Part II promised us all sorts of things--hoverboards, self-tying shoes, and trash compacters powered by nuclear fusion--but what is the movie's track record for making accurate predictions? 
Experts from the Monell Chemical Senses Center and the University of Pennsylvania's GRASP lab will join us this Friday to discuss the science of what is and is not possible from this iconic film.
Presentations will take place at 5:45 and 6:45 p.m., with ongoing activities in the museum throughout the evening.
