Main Exhibit Halls
Museum of Science, Boston

Cheer on students in a design challenge that explores the invention process. High School students from across the country will design and build a wind-powered device capable of hovering three stories in the air-carrying rubber ducks as payload. Students will be at MIT in the morning and then transport their devices to the Museum of Science to test and compete in Duck ‘N’ Hover, EurekaFest’s finale wind-powered competition which starts at 1:00 p.m. and ends around 4:30 p.m.

The Museum of Science will also offer hands-on learning activities for inventors of all ages from 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. Families are encouraged to join the fun!
