Great Inventions: Telephones, Trains & the Root Beer Float
Tuesday, September 9, 2014 – 6:30pm to 9:30pm
Adults Evening Public
Let your inner inventor out to play! See some of The Franklin Institute’s prized items from our curatorial collection and tinker and toy in activity stations throughout the museum.
Discover what brought some iconic inventions like Velcro, LED lights, and Morse code to fruition, and then let your imagination run wild! Get your creative juices flowing as you launch a trebuchet, navigate a submersible, make your own toothpaste, and get your hands dirty creating a special blend of paper. Test your engineering skills at the Build Challenge—can you assemble furniture without the instructions? Go on a behind-the-scenes tour of our 5-story-tall Tuttleman IMAX® theater, learn how an MRI works, and get a firsthand look at the inner workings of an ultrasound machine. Inspired yet? Reward yourself for your hard work with a root beer float from Little Baby’s Ice Cream!
