We’re headed to the 21st Annual Thingamajig Invention Convention! If you have kids, or just want to learn more about STEM yourself, join us this Thursday, 10-2pm, at the Prince George’s County Show Place Arena/Equestrian Center in Upper Marlboro, Maryland
STEM is everywhere. It shapes our everyday experiences and is designing our future. It opens the doors to strategic thinking, creative expression and the best careers. At the YMCA, young people have numerous opportunities to learn, play and be inspired through STEM. The YMCA’s THINGAMAJIG Invention Convention is just one example of everything STEM. For 21 years, we’ve sparked the inventive, creative minds of children through hands-on workshops, challenges and exhibits. On July 23rd, stretch your view of science with the YMCA and our many partners. JOIN US for our most inspiring year yet!
Every year, a diverse group of community leaders join us to share their expertise with the kids: the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office, Microsoft, the FAA, Washington Gas, DC Dept. of Public Works, LEGO Lab and MUCH more. With 13 invention challenges, an on-the-spot group challenge and over 50 workshops, kids leave with an experienced understanding of the world, their health and their future.
