AUGUSTA —The Maine State Museum in Augusta will present Invention Challenge!, a chance for everyone to get creative while designing, building and testing their inventions Saturday, March 18.

All activities and museum admission are free of charge from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.  

“The museum is full of stories about Maine inventors and their inventions,” chief educator Joanna Torow said. “The activities planned for March 18 give us a chance to help everyone discover those stories and then try their own hands at inventing. It will be a fun, creative time for everyone. A special feature will be a chance to play the museum’s own Path to Invention game.”

The Invention Challenge is the second in a series of free family Saturdays held monthly through August. Free family Saturdays are sponsored by Oakhurst Dairy and Renys. The next free family Saturday is April 15 and will feature a traveling natural history program and live animals presented by the Chewonki Foundation.
