First Friday: Enter the Matrix

When: Fri., July 1, 6 p.m.-12 a.m. 2016

Theorists are debating if we're already in the matrix, the simulated reality depicted in the 1999 film starring Keanu Reeves. But would we even be able to tell if we are? First Friday: Enter the Matrix challenges you to find out. From 6 p.m. to midnight at the Saint Louis Science Center (5050 Oakland Avenue; you can follow the White Rabbit through a series of challenges and hopefully come out on the other side a free human being. There will be a panel discussion on the topic and talks with entrepreneurs in the field of augmented reality and virtual reality. You can also play in the Makerspace area and watch the film that started it all at 10 p.m. Admission is free, but some activities require a small fee.
