Event description

Description

Experience the wonder and excitement of a c.1900 World's Fair while earning your "Product Designer" Junior badge. Do you know what innovations first debuted at the fair? Discover how a simple invention like the zipper changed fashion, and imagine what your clothes would look like without it! Then, design your own purse using only fabric and scissors. Can you construct a functional bag without using modern technologies?

Each participant will recieve a "Product Designer" packet with games and activities to help them earn their badge. The packet is self-guided and will take approx. 1 hr to complete. Registration fees cover program supplies and the "Product Designer" badge.

This is an all-day community event. Family and friends are welcome! Other activities include homemade ice cream, live music, arts & crafts projects, and national pavillions sponsored by local cultural centers and embassies.
