"The Gift" consists of three bronze figures that consist of Jack Kilby, a young boy, and young girl. Kilby reaches out his hand, giving his microchip (the gift) to the young boy. To Kilby's right, a younger girl eagerly reaches out a hand to the slightly older boy; with her other hand she points a finger towards the stars. Symbolically, the sculpture represents transmission of knowledge from one generation to the next and how that transmission has been affected by the microchip. Jack Kilby represents "The Great Generation," the boy represents "The Now Generation," and the girl represents "The Future Generation."
