UI Mobile Museum Campus Launch

Location: 

Adler Journalism and Mass Communication Building

The UI Mobile Museum starts its fifth year of travel around Iowa this week. Don’t miss your chance to see it on campus!  We’ll be on the plaza between the Main Library and the Adler Journalism Building from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Thursday, April 11. Stop by and check out this year’s all-new exhibits.

Discovery is only the beginning ...what happens to research when it is ready to leave the lab?   This year the Mobile Museum highlights a few of the many ways ideas and innovation that start at the University of Iowa take flight in the world outside the university.

  • Explore raptors in an oak savanna and ways in which understanding them helps us conserve Iowa's environment in Wild Iowa.

  • See how art and technology convey information to help save endangered species in A Matter of Scales

  • Learn how new technologies are speeding up innovation in health care and business in Discover/Develop/Deploy.

Find more ways UI students, faculty, and staff are using research to change the world on our interactive touchscreens.  For complete exhibit descriptions and a list of partners visit: mobilemuseum.uiowa.edu

The Mobile Museum is free and open to the public and is equipped with a wheelchair lift.

Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend all University of Iowa–sponsored events. If you are a person with a disability who requires a reasonable accommodation in order to participate in this program, please contact JC Gillett in advance at mobile-museum@uiowa.edu or 319-335-2898.
