The Museum of Science and Industry is testing out a new experiment: The Black Creativity Innovation Studio.
It’s a space for young people to experiment and explore new ideas in science and engineering.
The studio is a part of the Museum of Science and Industry’s black creativity project and pays tribute to the heritage and scientific contributions of African Americans.
The program runs in conjunction with the black creativity juried art exhibition, which is the longest-running exhibition of African American art in the nation.
The works of 100 amateur, professional, and youth African American artists are on display at the museum.
The black creativity project is open to all young people.
The inventions created by the participants at the innovation studio are put on display to inspire others.
The Black Creativity Innovation Studio forces young people to think outside the box and develop solutions to real life challenges.
