On the Shoulders of Giants
Join us as we pay tribute to leaders and heroes who have come before us and paved our way so we can live as we do today. Ben Franklin - author, inventor, scientist, diplomat - there's nothing he can't do! At the 'great invention convention', learn about the contributions of Alexander Graham Bell, Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison and George Washington Carver.
