Get tech savvy

If you haven’t already taken advantage of the free tech-focused events that make up Made in Chicago Week, you still have one informative and free event left. Don’t miss Trending in Tech, the week’s final event. During the talk, Uber’s general manager in Illinois and Indiana Chris Taylor, senior associate of Chicago Ventures Ezra Galston, and Avant’s chief financial officer Suk Shah will share their experience and give insight into how company culture can foster innovation. Rise Interactive, 1 S Wacker Dr, Suite 300, 6–8pm. Free)

Duck in for an indulgent feast

Indulge in a decadent duck dinner at, where else, Bridgeport’s Duck Inn. The duck-focused restaurant invites you to the Design and Dine Supper Club dinner featuring hot toddies and four wine-paired courses. Ceramic artist Anneliese Moy provides the design element, as each course features her dishes. Guests take home a special handmade gift from the event. (The Duck Inn, 2701 S Eleanor St, 6:30pm. $100)

Meet a fleet of robots

Embrace our not-so-distant future at the Museum of Science and Industry’s “Robot Revolution,” where nearly 40 friendly robots from around the world make up an interactive exhibit. Bring your family and unleash your kids to build their own robots, challenge one to a game of blackjack or meet a drone. If you have kids, this is a can’t miss, but it’s just as fun for adult.
