Museum of Science Fiction launches Kickstarter campaign for Escape Velocity!
POSTED 01 Mar 2016 . BY Tom Anstey
The Kickstarter campaign will create a science-fair-meets-science-fiction convention
The upcoming Museum of Science Fiction has launched a Kickstarter campaign for a futuristic version of the World’s Fair, where STEAM and science fiction will be used to create a unique educational event for visitors.

Known as Escape Velocity!, the science-fair-meets-science-fiction convention, will combine real science and technology innovation with art and cosplay.

Held at the Gaylord Hotel at National Harbor in Maryland, US, the event – which is partnered with NASA – will include a gala awards dinner, Space Party, 75 panels and technology demonstrations.



Up to 10,000 people are expected to attend the event, which is using Kickstarter to reach its US$18,000 (€16,500, £12,800) funding goal, with fundees purchasing hotel accommodation and tickets, as well as pins, t-shirts, signed guest photos, and special access to VIP areas.
