Event description

Description

Spy in the Wild is a 5- part NATURE miniseries that employs more than 30 animatronic spy cameras disguised as animals to secretly record behavior in the wild. These “spycams” reveal animals as having emotions and behavior similar to humans: specifically, a capacity to love, grieve, deceive, and invent. Among the featured Spy Creatures are: Spy Orangutan, Spy Croc Hatchling, Spy Meerkat, Spy Egret, Spy Tortoise, Spy Prairie Dog, Spy Macaw, Spy Sloth, Spy Cobra, Spy Bushbaby, Spy Squirrel, Spy Adelie, and Spy Baby Hippo. These robotic, uncanny look-alikes infiltrate the natural world to film surprising behavior among wildlife from around the globe.

Join us for a special Atlanta Science Festival screening event to watch scenes from this innovative series and hear from robotics experts about how it all works. You'll even get to try your own hand at a robotics activity with specialists from the Museum of Design Atlanta!

Spy in the Wild premieres on GPB on Wednesdays, February 1 - March 1 at 8pm.
