Welcome to Thinkery, Waymo! Learn more about this very special partnership—and our brand-new Firefly exhibit.
Have you noticed something new in our Group Entry area? Now you can meet Firefly—Waymo‘s prototype autonomous vehicle—at Thinkery! This special self-driving vehicle made its debut at Thinkery in 2015, and we’re celebrating the two-year anniversary with a brand-new exhibit highlighting the car’s innovative technology.
Unveiled Friday, October 20 in a press conference, our Firefly will be one of only 30 prototypes on loan nationwide! During the press event, students and educators from Metz Elementary and Overton Elementary learned about the prototype’s design process, production and implementation—then they enjoyed and explored the museum in Guided Tours generously sponsored by Waymo.
Many thanks to Waymo, Council Member Ann Kitchen, the office of Mayor Steve Adler, engineer Andrew Chatham, Steven Mahan, Elizabeth Christian Public Relations, Buie & Co. and more for joining us, too!
What are you waiting for? Come meet Firefly at Thinkery!
Special thanks to Waymo for bringing this groundbreaking innovation to Thinkery—a second time!
