Join us for the 22nd Annual Thingamajig Invention Convention!
STEM is everywhere. It shapes our everyday experiences and is designing our future. It opens the doors to strategic thinking, creative expression and the best careers. At the YMCA of Metropolitan Washington, we've taken STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) education to heart with the Thingamajig Invention Convention. Every July, we expose youth to interactive STEM-related activities, from robotics to aeronautics to medicine, designed to ignite their interest. What’s more, we infuse the arts to make learning more meaningful and personal.
Children will experience an action-packed day of hands-on experiments and demonstrations. They'll walk through tables of inventions--where all of the creations are made out of cast-off materials. They'll see robots up close and personal, learn the importance of physical activity and watch their peers compete in both a fashion show and talent show.

When: Thursday, July 28 from 9am to 3pm
Where: Show Place Arena, 14900 Pennsylvania Ave., Upper Marlboro MD
