Motivate your kids to be the next great inventors or entrepreneurs with stories of past and present-day changemakers at this weekly program in Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation. Explore the innovations — big and small — that make the world what it is today, and learn by doing with hands-on, minds-on activities designed for youth ages 8-12.

Bring practical problem-solving to life with pop-up talks and demos from real-life inventors who share how they turned their ideas into action. Engage young tinkerers and hackers with design-thinking skills, and connect to the trials and achievements of history's boundary pushers.

Let's roll up our sleeves and make something together.
