 Invention Convention encourages innovation, creativity, and imagination in young people through science, technology, and engineering. At the Tinkering Tables, children take apart gadgets to see how they are made. They can then make their own “invention” at the Create-an-Invention room. Afterward, children receive a patent from the Hagley Patent Office. Hagley Museum and Library, January 19th, 20th and 21st, 10 A.M.
