Researchers Reanimate Frankenstein to Bring Science to Life

Arizona State University is designing a museum inviting anyone willing to participate to explore ethics and science through the well-known story of Frankenstein. The museum is set to open in 2018 and will focus on scientific progress and ethics to stimulate conversation.

“We wanted to get people thinking about all of the incredible advances in fields like synthetic biology and robotics and about the ethics and social implications, but not hitting them over the head with the ethical questions,” says Ed Finn, director of the Center for Science and the Imagination at A.S.U. Tempe.
