Inventors Club

Make Something!

The inventors of tomorrow start today. Inventors Club is a six week program for girls and boys to become inventors. Students make a project using the tools and materials from The Bakken’s student workshop, guided by mentors and Bakken educators. Students gain hands-on experience with science, technology, engineering and math while creating their individual projects. Each session has a unique theme to spark the imagination. Programs occur on six consecutive Saturdays during the fall, winter, and spring.
