WonderWorks is putting inventions in the spotlight by celebrating National Inventor Day, held annually on February 11. To celebrate, they have a temporary exhibit highlighting some of the most important inventions and asking guests to share their ideas for new inventions to change the world.
Many inventions throughout history have focused on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), which is the focus of the activities and learning opportunities at WonderWorks. Some of the most common inventions that we use daily came from inventors that most people know by name, including Thomas Edison, Benjamin Franklin, Marie Curie, Nikola Tesla, Henry Ford, Steve Jobs, and Elon Musk.
WonderWorks focus is to celebrate the world of imagination and explore the differences between an inventor and an entrepreneur. Guests will learn fun facts about past inventions, the geniuses behind them, and how these inventions have changed the way we live.
