AUGUSTA — The Maine State Museum will present Invention Challenge! from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m Saturday, March 18. All activities and museum admission are free of charge, according to a museum news release. \

“The museum is full of stories about Maine inventors and their inventions,” said Chief Educator Joanna Torow, according to the release. “The activities planned for March 18 give us a chance to help everyone discover those stories and then try their own hands at inventing. It will be a fun, creative time for everyone. A special feature will be a chance to play the museum’s own Path to Invention game.”

The event is part of free family Saturdays held monthly through August at the museum. The next free family Saturday is April 15 and will feature a traveling natural history program and live animals presented by the Chewonki Foundation.
