Maine State Museum’s Free Family Saturday Features Invention Challenge! on Saturday, March 18

Free Admission All Day

Augusta, Maine - The Maine State Museum in Augusta presents Invention Challenge!, a chance for everyone to get creative while designing, building, and testing their own inventions on Saturday, March 18, 2017. All activities and museum admission are free of charge from 10 am to 4 pm.

“The museum is full of stories about Maine inventors and their inventions,” comments Chief Educator Joanna Torow. “The activities planned for March 18 give us a chance to help everyone discover those stories and then try their own hands at inventing. It will be a fun, creative time for everyone. A special feature will be a chance to play the museum’s own Path to Invention game.”

The Invention Challenge is the second in a series of free family Saturdays to be held one Saturday each month at the museum through August. Free family Saturdays are sponsored by Oakhurst Dairy and Renys. The next free family Saturday is April 15 and will feature a traveling natural history program and live animals presented by the Chewonki Foundation.
