Let’s Connect! Exploring Communication Technology

Let’s Connect! Exploring Communication Technology

On view through May 14, 2023

A voice travels through the air at 343 meters per second. That wasn’t fast enough. A shout can be heard 2 kilometers away. That wasn’t far enough. Let’s Connect! explores a world of innovation in which scientists, inventors, and visionaries keep breaking limits to make our modern connections what they are today.

As technology has evolved – from carved writings, paper letters and radio broadcasting to instantaneous messaging from almost anywhere on Earth – it has altered the ways in which we interact. This dynamic exhibition explores the efforts of human beings to move an ever-growing quantity of information faster and more broadly than ever before.
