Thomas Edison’s Secret Lab

Today, if you want to learn how to knit or build a dog house (or if you need help with homework), you can ask the Internet. The tools and resources involved in many hobbies and professions are more affordable than ever – or free, thanks to open source technology.

Remarkable advances in science, technology, engineering, healthcare and other fields sounded unbelievable not too long ago: using Wi-Fi and electronics to control paralyzed limbs, driverless cars, a self-powered artificial heart, cloud computing, electric cars – even Echo. Many are already part of our everyday lives.

Inspired by the animation and commitment to fun and adventures presented in the show, Thomas Edison’s Secret Lab will showcase Edison, Angie and other characters, and invite visitors to join explorations of science topics through age-appropriate activities that meet developmental standards for early learners as well as academic standards for school-age children. The exhibit will also engage adults and provide rich educational opportunities for classroom teachers and families through field trip and visitor programs, educational workshops and events during the exhibit’s display at host venues.

Thomas Edison’s Secret Lab will include English and Spanish signage for caregivers that helps them maximize their child’s experience and highlights the importance of STEAM education to a child’s individual academic success, the jobs of the future, and our nation’s long-term economic and workforce development goals.
