Innovation Week

May 7 - 12

The best inventions and innovations often leave people asking, “Why didn’t I think of that?”

Innovation Week is a week celebrating original ideas, new creations and improvements to existing products.   

Learn about electronic components like resistors, transistors and inductors as you experiment with batteries, bulbs, buzzers, switches and more during this week devoted to exploring circuits.

Electrify your ingenuity as you tinker with circuit blocks, test objects for conductivity and have a hair-raising good time with static electricity.
