On January 16, 2017, the Delaware SkillsUSA state officers took part in the Invention Convention at the Hagley Museum in Wilmington. This event is specifically geared towards young children, and encourages them to get creative. The event features a science show, an invention room, and a deconstruction room.
The science show featured a chemist conducting various weather experiments for a large crowd of children and parents alike. In the invention room children could build anything they desired with the help of volunteers, and tons of items like cardboard, and soda bottles. There was even a patent table where they could document their invention. In the deconstruction room children could take apart household items such as clocks, printers, and computers to see how they worked.
The state officers aided in keeping the work areas safe, stocked, and clean. We look forward to coming back and doing it all again next year!
