Inventors, innovators, and makers are invited to Discovery Cube to practice and develop their skills during Inventors Week! Aspiring inventors can observe the flow of electricity and learn how circuits power every day devices; design and build a parachute for the annual Parachute Competition; explore the Makey Makey and use innovative thinking to create a microcontroller; plus, design and build a hoop glider!
Experiment with gravity, surface area and engineering while designing a hoop glider and testing it through an obstacle course.
Practice your innovative skills by engineering a touchpad using everyday objects and an online program.
Explore the power of electricity while learning about short-circuits, current, and how switches work.
Design, build, and test a parachute in the annual Parachute Competition! Parachutes with the longest hang time will win a prize every day during Inventors Week.
