Invention Convention

    Egg crates, pipe cleaners, cereal boxes, and toilet paper tubes.  These are the prime ingredients for some great inventions.  First Experience takes us to the Invention Convention.  It’s the Hagley Museum’s annual event that brings out the best in imagination and creativity.  Oh, and for good measure we’ll throw in a little chemistry show.  Check out these very enterprising children.
