FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: New interactive exhibition on aerospace innovation to launch this Saturday!
Green Bay, WI—January 30, 2023— Above and Beyond, an interactive science exhibition exploring transformative innovations in aerospace, will launch Saturday, February 4, 2023, at the Neville Public Museum
The tour is sponsored by Boeing [NYSE: BA], developed in commemoration of Boeing’s 100th anniversary.
The 3,000-square-foot exhibition offers an unprecedented interactive demonstration of advances in aviation and aerospace, from the first powered flights to the newest innovations on Earth and in space.
After entering an immersive wraparound theater, visitors can venture into five galleries comprising a wide range of interactive displays. Exhibit-goers can test their own supersonic fighter-jet design in a virtual high-speed flying competition. Virtual 3-D models demonstrate key innovations in flight and the science behind them. A group flying experience with motion-sensing image capture helps visitors sense what it’s like to fly like a bird in a flock, while exploring the forces of flight.
Flight simulation, immersive theater, touch-table displays, and interactive displays are examples of exhibit technology offering an experiential understanding of the scientific concepts behind flight.
“Sparking an interest in the wonder of aerospace at an early age is a priority for Boeing, and the Above and Beyond exhibition provides future engineers, pilots or astronauts with an interactive glimpse into how they can achieve their dreams and inspires them to pursue careers in science and technology,” said Todd Citron, Ph.D., chief technology officer and vice president and general manager of Boeing Research & Technology. Boeing has launched three concurrent international tours, spanning North America, the Middle East, Europe, and Asia.
Above and Beyond is produced by Evergreen Exhibitions in association with Boeing, in collaboration with NASA and the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum.
