The Orlando Science Center is celebrating the eighth anniversary of Otronicon, an even that promotes the role interactive technology plays in the way we live, learn, work and play. The experience takes place on Jan. 18 and continues through Jan. 21, 2013 offering attendees an opportunity to gain interest in science and tech careers through the appeal of video games, interactive technology and virtual reality.
This year, partners including EA Sports, Lockheed Martin, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts and many more will demonstrate Orlando’s impact on the world of entertainment, simulation, education, training and healthcare. The four-day event will promote the concept of “made in Orlando, played in Orlando” with many chances to interact with the creative professionals that make the games you enjoy and discover the growing career opportunities in your own backyard.
Guests can also experience Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination! Get up close with C-3PO, build a Droid and learn what it might take to live on the planet Tatooine as you explore the connection between the science of the Star Warsuniverse and that of the real world.
Otronicon is included with admission the museum, which costs $27 for adults and $20 for youth (ages 3-11). For more information, please visit www.otronicon.org or call 407-514-2000.
