Discovery is only the beginning ...what happens to research when it is ready to leave the lab? This year the Mobile Museum highlights a few of the many ways ideas and innovation that start at the University of Iowa take flight in the world outside the university.
• Explore raptors in an oak savanna and ways in which understanding them helps us conserve Iowa's environment in Wild Iowa.
• See how art and technology convey information to help save endangered species in A Matter of Scales.
• Learn how new technologies are speeding up innovation in health care and business in Discover/Develop/Deploy.

Find more ways UI students, faculty, and staff are using research to change the world on our interactive touchscreens.

Special to the MAPS Expo is “Scorpy’s Story” – the discovery of Pentecopteris decorahensis, a giant eurypterid from Winneshiek County, Iowa, featuring a life-size, 6-foot long model of the oldest-known sea scorpion and world’s first big predator!"

The Mobile Museum is free and open to the public and is equipped with a wheelchair lift.
