The Frankenstein Laboratory for Innovation and Fantastical Exploration (L.I.F.E.) seeks the next generation of thinkers and makers to investigate how science and technology shape the world around us and Professor Pennypickle thinks you should be included. To celebrate the 200th anniversary of the publication of Mary Shelley's masterpiece, join us to play with monsters, robotics, electricity, and all things Frankenstein-ish at our L.I.F.E. Laboratory extravaganza! We'll spend two days toying with tons of hands-on fun and wacky experimentation... come dressed like Frankenstein to get a special treat from the Professor. Be sure to check back soon to see what we have planned.
