Where does the word “sandwich” come from? Who invented antibiotics? This workshop gives youths the opportunity to put themselves in the shoes of five great inventors (Einstein, Galileo, Newton, Edison and Franklin) and succeed in scientific experiments similar to those conducted by these famous scientists on light, gravity, density, electric circuits and static electricity. Who knows if one of them will be the next great inventor of the century?
For 30 more minutes
