The Museum of Science invites The Innovators and friends to learn, discuss, and explore the role that gaming technology plays in our everyday lives.
Innovators Event: The Gamified World
Our New Normal
Wednesday, May 20
Museum of Science, Boston
We are living in a transformational age. We are amongst the first generation of digital natives growing up in a world where games have been as common of a medium as television, radio, and literature. We are subconsciously and naturally gaming many aspects of our everyday lives – driving, working, and exercising to name just a few – made possible by this evolving digital extension of ourselves.
This event will bring together experts to discuss the “now” and the future of gaming. What are the changes and trends that are most significant in the landscape of gaming? How will the evolution of games and gaming effect society as a whole? These are the type of questions that will be explored, and the event will also have (of course) plenty of opportunities to play!
6:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.

The Mission of the Museum of Science
The Museum's mission is to play a leading role in transforming the nation's relationship with science and technology. This role becomes ever more important as science and technology shape and reshape our lives and world, and it means we:
- Promote active citizenship informed by the world of science and technology
- Inspire lifelong appreciation of the importance and impact of science and engineering
- Encourage young people of all backgrounds to explore and develop their interests in understanding the natural and human-made world
To do this, we will continue to build our position as a leader in the world's museum community and use our educational perspective as an informal learning institution to help the formal pre K-12 education system.
