Smithsonian Discovery Theater on Tour Presents: Lions of Industry, Mothers of Invention

Thursday, February 13, 2014 - 10 a.m.

Picture of Madame CJ WalkerDiscovery Theater’s interactive play honors the creativity and genius of African American entrepreneurs and inventors like beauty innovator Madam C.J. Walker, “peanut man” George Washington Carver, academic giant Booker T. Washington, and even cranky potato chip inventor George Crum.

The play demonstrates how the featured inventors all solved a problem or fulfilled a need and how great things originate and develop with an idea, imagination, and the belief that you can make it happen. Students will see that with creativity and commitment, they too can make improvements to the world around us.

Join us in Room A-5.

Ages 8-12.
