Be an Innovator!
Sun, Apr 23
10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Multiple activity stations will be set up around Innovation Plaza, each with an activity based on a featured idea or innovator. A design challenge using everyday materials will allow participants to discover basic principles of engineering. Participants will also be able to explore the strength of Buckminster Fuller’s geodesic dome by building their own models while comparing the properties of different materials to understand the science behind design. Another interactive station will provide context and allow participants to learn about the lives of the innovators with a fact-finding scavenger hunt around the Innovation Plaza.
