Inventor's Fair and Parachute Competition

In conjunction with the Discovery Science Center's current exhibit dedicated to the brilliance of Leonardo Da Vinci, the Center presents their week-long Inventor's Fair. Keep your kids' brains from turning into summertime-mush and get them to the DSC for guest speakers from the Astounding Inventors Group and local Robotics Club, plus interactive exhibits including the Tinker Studio, which allows young minds to "be the inventor" with a collection of common household items. Then, take to the skies with the daily parachute competition, where children create their own parachute from an assortment of materials (including a plastic army man). The chute that stays airborne the longest wins its creator an annual family membership to the Center.
