Wilmington, Delaware – Hagley Museum and Library celebrates fifteen years of inspiring innovation and creativity in children with an aeronautics and aerodynamics-themed Invention Convention. Reach new heights with activities like building balloon rockets and hooper gliders. Hagley’s Invention Convention is January 18, 19, and 20, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission, including supplies, is $5 per child ages 4 to 14, $7 per adult, and free for Hagley members and children 3 and under.

Let children’s imaginations soar with the Franklin Institute’s traveling show, Flight, on January 18. This interactive program will allow visitors to explore the exciting history of flight, investigate the Bernoulli principle, and learn how airplane wings provide lift. Experience flying and landing an aircraft with the Friends of Bellanca Airfield’s flight simulator. Try on space gloves and see space suits from ILC Dover (Saturday and Sunday only). Make your own aircraft, spaceship, or out-of-this-world creation at Agilent’s Create-an-Invention Workshop using familiar household items like cereal boxes, paper towel rolls, and oatmeal containers.
Invention Convention is sponsored, in part, by Advanced Networking, Inc.; Agilent Technologies, Inc.; CDA Engineering, Inc.; Goodwill of Delaware and Delaware County; Kompressed Air of Delaware, Inc.; and Nickle Electrical Companies.
