Space Invaders - An Afternoon with the Rat King

FREE with Museum Admission

This workshop, with the artists Jake Peterson and Lauren F. Adams, will include local research scientists that experiment on animals and or model systems after animal behavior. The forum guests will discuss their jobs, experiences, and how their research connects (or disconnects) with human social behavior. It will also explore autonomous tools (robots) and their implications for the future of labor.
