Toronto, June 17 (Canadian-Media): PoPnology, the interactive, travelling exhibition, expected to run in Ontario Science, Toronto from May 19, 2018 - August 6, 2018, is the convergence between popular culture and current technology and shows how human imagination has the power to predict the future, media reports said.
Reportedly one of the world's first interactive science museums, the Science Centre contains an array of inspiring installations and exhibit halls.
This interactive, travelling exhibition, PoPnology explores how popular films, television, books and art influence our past, present and future.
Through immersive games, hands-on robotics and futuristic technology, POPnology uncovers the magnitude of pop culture’s impact on how we play, connect, move, live and work, the four main areas into which PoPnology is divided.
How we play takes you through the inspiration and invention of games, robots and virtual reality that impacts life and leisure.

How We Move explores the history of human transport — from fantasies of flying and time-travelling cars to vehicles that can travel on other planets.
How We Live and Work brings you today’s fascinating innovations that were predicted long ago in books and movies.
Through immersive games, hands-on robotics and futuristic technology, you’ll see just how far we’ve come and where we're going.
How We Connect takes you into the world that brought you the social media and Artificial Intelligence assistances you use every day.
During an interview session with Chief Executive Officer & Chief Science Officer of the Ontario Science Centre on the opening day of PoPnology, Dr Maurice Bitran said the research that is done in Science and technology is more about communicating with the students. He said the need of the hour was to "solve the very significant sustainability problem of science, technology and innovation."

He said our kids in Ontario are exposed to Science in grade 9th and 10th and that the centre needed to do some intervention before that in such a way that kids are able to absorb all aspects of science and technology in the best perspective.
Ontario Science Centre collaborates with various universities, colleges and research centres and the interactive exhibition, PoPnology is the result of its collaboration with Durham College who was responsible for sponsoring this program.
To extend the POPnology experience, the Ontario Science Centre offers extended, hands-on programming throughout the exhibition.
POPnology includes: Hands-on robotics; virtual projection games; futuristic musical instrument technology; immersive games, including virtual reality gaming, Robotic arm interactives and much more.

Ontario Science Centre's research is in fact all about communication, not only between the researchers, the students and other public; it is about communicating between the past, present and the future.
