SciFri: Thomas Edison
Friday, March 29th in the MUR
Session 1 (Grades K - 2): 6 - 6:45pm
Session 2 (Grades 3 - 6): 7 - 7:45pm
Ever wonder what it was like to be one of the world's greatest inventors? Now's your chance to find out!
Thomas Alva Edison will come to life at Del Mar Heights through an authentic costumed portrayal. This 45-minute presentation (broken into two sessions to accommodate different grade levels) will begin with Edison's early childhood curiosity about how and why things worked and highlight his career inventing dozens of devices we take for granted every day. Students will get to see a demonstration of Edison's first light bulb, an original Edison cylinder phonograph that still works after more than 100 years, and see a message sent on an actual telegraph key. Most importantly, the importance of asking questions, hard work, perseverance and imagination will be emphasized.
