From the discovery of the wheel to the birth of the internet, inventions have not only changed the world, but also the world around us. See how inventions got their start at the Museum’s free Invention & Discovery Family Day event on Saturday, March 1, 2014 from 11:00am to 1:00pm. There will be plenty of fun and mind boggling experiments to leave scientists of all ages scratching their heads! The Temple Public Library’s “What Do You Geek?” team will be here and the Mayborn Science Theater will showcase several science demonstrations. Barrel train rides will also be offered, dependent on the weather.
“We often forget that the simplest things in our lives were once only someone’s dream or idea—but because of those dreams or ideas, today we have things like planes, trains, television, cell phones, lights in our home–even space travel. This month’s family day is to celebrate those inventors and scientists and to inspire all those future inventors in our community!” said Angela McCleaf, the Museum’s Curator.
The Temple Railroad and Heritage Museum hosts a free Family Day event on the first Saturday of each month. Attendance at the event is free. Regular admission charges apply to view the rest of the museum. The museum is located in the Santa Fe Depot at 315 West Avenue B in downtown Temple. The museum is open 10am – 4pm, Tuesday – Saturday.
