Pattie Cordova: Inventors Week at Discovery Cube OC

We spent our Saturday morning celebrating the start of Inventors Week at Discovery Cube OC. We were there bright and early at 10 a.m. to make sure that we would visit all the stations.

Neither the kids nor I had ever been to Inventors Week before so we took the opportunity to use our yearly membership and check it out. The first floor has tables with Discovery Cube volunteers and scientists.

We got the chance to try out circuit boards and learn about electricity. The gal helping us out took time to explain to us how the circuit boards work and even let us do a couple of different variations.

The kids got a big kick out of making music from potatoes, bagels and metal. They used an activity kit called Makey Makey. They liked it so much that I’m going to get the kit for them on Amazon later. Using Makey Makey, they can not only make music, but they can also program other functions – and even play Tetris!

We also went upstairs and ran into Brain Builders. They’re located in Laguna Niguel, but also visit local schools. There, we were able to build LEGO creations and then blow them up. It was so cool!!!

Inventors Week at Discovery Cube OC runs July 2nd through July 10th! Visit the cube and get hands-on demonstrations and stage shows. It’s a great way to keep the kids busy and have them learn a thing or two as well!
