Invention Convention at Hagley Museum

There's still time to Sunday and Monday! [SITE]

Your kids can let their imagination go wild, creating and inventing....

Who would have thought these common (and not so common) household items could create a time machine?

 “The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination.” ~ Albert Einstein

In another room, the kids were able to choose items like VCRs, toasters, telephones, thermostats, vacuums and more to take apart, exploring their inner mechanisms.

Then, there are the on-going lectures by the Franklin Institute, today's was on flight. Fireballs flew through the room and rockets launched! Sunday's talks will be on physics and Monday's on chemistry.

"Patents" are even given out on particularly awesome inventions!

“Knowledge emerges only through invention and re-invention, through the restless, impatient, continuing, hopeful inquiry human beings pursue in the world, with the world, and with each other.” ~ Paulo Freire
