The Orlando Science Center on Friday kicks off its annual “geek fest.” That’s how the Science Center’s Jeff Stanford fondly refers to Otronicon, a hands-on event featuring simulators, video games, virtual reality and more.

“Otronicon for four days overtakes the Orlando Science Center and basically we celebrate technology and how it’s impacting how we live, learn, work and play,” said Stanford.

The event runs through Monday, with Saturday night reserved for the 21-and-up crowd at the museum’s “Science Night Live.”
