Check Out ‘Kid Inventor’ Exhibit at Museum of Discovery
Kids need freedom to imagine and create, and a brand new temporary exhibit at the Museum of Discovery is giving them a chance to do just that.
The "Kid Inventor" exhibit opens Saturday. Aug. 31 and helps kids to design, test and build unique creations with a wide variety of supplies and technologies. The exhibit is fully interactive, prompting young inventors to problem solve, explore and create, according to Museum of Discovery CEO Kelley Bass.
The exhibit features several main stations where kids can invent in a step-by-step process, starting with the design area. There, kids can sketch and shape their ideas. They then head to the build area where they can bring their design to life with materials ranging from Legos to string.
After completing their build, a test area full of variable such as a wind tube and race track is the perfect spot to see how they've done. Who knows — your kid just might be the next Leonardo da Vinci, Marie Curie or Nikola Tesla.
"Kid Inventor" also features a tech studio where museum guests can try animation, coding and sound mixing.
The exhibit is open at Museum of Discovery From Aug. 31, 2019 through Jan. 5, 2020 and is included in general admission: $10 for adults and $8 for kids 12 and younger. For more info on the new exhibit, visit the museum website.
