The Star Trek: Starfleet Academy Experience will have its world debut at the Canada Aviation and Space Museum in Ottawa, Canada on 20th May, 2016.
The event is a new interactive exhibit that uses the Star Trek franchise as a platform to teach visitors about science and technology.
Visitors will have the opportunity to become a Starfleet cadet, to beat the Kobayashi Maru test, and pilot a starship from an active bridge.
“We are very proud to be developing this wonderful exhibition with our partners EMS and CBS Consumer Products,” commented Alex Benay, president and CEO of the Canada Science and Technology Museums Corporation.
“We are certain it will prove to be a ‘must-see’ for the 2016 summer tourists and locals alike, as well as a wonderful complement to the Canada Aviation and Space Museum’s existing visitor experiences and offerings on aviation and space travel.”
The exhibition is produced by EMS Entertainment and under license by CBS Consumer Products. Ottawa is the first stop on a multi-city North American tour. The exhibition will be on view at the Canada Aviation and Space Museum from May until the end of September 2016.
“Star Trek has had a profound influence on many technologies we use today, and the show continues to inspire new technology and science,” added Christoph Rahofer, CEO of EMS Entertainment and producer of the show.
“With Star Trek: The Starfleet Academy Experience, we will present the history of the future and what is envisioned for the future of science and technology.”
