The Garden State, Where Ideas Grow: Inventing in New Jersey

The Garden State, Where Ideas Grow: Inventing in New Jersey
Join Linda Barth as she explores some of the groundbreaking inventions that got their start right here in New Jersey. Tuesday, June 10 • 7 p.m.

Many Americans are familiar with Thomas Edison’s “invention factory” in Menlo Park, where he patented the phonograph, the light bulb and more than one thousand other items. Yet many other ideas have grown in the Garden State, too—the first drive-in theater, ice cream cones, M&M's, catcher’s masks and Band-Aids, to name a few. Join author Linda Barth as she explores groundbreaking, useful, fun and even silly inventions and their New Jersey roots.

Don’t miss the exhibit by 3rd graders from Lawrence Brook elementary celebrating the ingenuity of today’s young inventors. The display will showcase entries from the school’s 2014 Invention Convention!
