Leonardo's opening new exhibit Friday

Leonardo's Children's Museum will open its new "Kid Inventor" exhibit on Friday. 

ENID, Okla. — Leonardo's Children's Museum is calling all inventors for its new "Kid Inventor" exhibit opening Friday.

"'Kid Inventor' is a fun way to inspire children to use their creativity and explore possibilities,” said Executive Director Tracy Bittle. “'Kid Inventor' is developed by the Oklahoma Museum Network and funded by the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation. The new exhibit encourages children to design, test and build unique creations using a variety of materials and technologies."

Exhibit attendees have the opportunity to sketch and shape ideas, followed up with going to the build area and bringing the design to life. 

"A car, a plane, a monster — and beyond — can be built with materials ranging from Legos to string, paper and straws," according to a release. "Finally, inventors can move to the test area to investigate how their creations react to variables like a wind tube, airstream table, a timed race track or a launch pad." 

The exhibit also will feature a Tech Studio where guests can learn animation skills, practice coding and try sound mixing and engineering, according to Leonardo's. In Spare Parts, creators can build from the ground up. 

"Kid Inventor" is free with paid admission to the museum, and will replace the "Backyard Bugs" exhibit.
