Inventors Workshop

June 17-21, 2019 | 9 am to 3 pm

This hands-on workshop is all about inventing and making cool things with a wide range of tools and materials. Young inventors will explore and develop their own creativity while having fun with others. Build the tallest free standing structure using raw spaghetti. Take a trip to the Musée Mécanique for inspiration, and build your own arcade game using cardboard and duct tape. Be prepared to show your creative side and start tinkering with everyday household supplies to make some cool projects. This week will appeal to creative learners who work well both individually and in teams. There will be lots of friendly competitions for some fun prizes.
