Taos youth brought energy and excitement to annual Invent Event
The Enos Garcia Elementary School gymnasium hummed with excitement and energy Saturday (April 28) during the annual Invent Event. Hundreds of children and adults weaved around one another as they explored the 30 stations filling the gym from corner to corner.
Area youth played with robots, printed in 3-D, weaved fibers, created solar lamps and went to battle with cardboard armor and toy weapons. Although each station hosted a unique activity, they shared a common purpose: to convey the thrill of innovation in the next generation.
Now in its fourth year, the Invent Event was produced by Twirl, A Play Space in collaboration with a host of partners, including PPC Solar, Explora, Rocky Mountain Youth Corps, Weaving Southwest, Wholly Rags, Kit Carson Electric Coop, taosARC, First Robotics Los Alamos, Inspire and Anansi Charter.
The Taos News captured some of the sights, which you can see in this week’s “On the scene” column on Page 16 in Tempo.
