the 3rd annual Invent Event! is coming!

Saturday April 29th, 2017  12-4 pm at the Enos Garcia Gym

A Free Community Celebration of Creativity and Technology

Come discover the creativity, skills and talent of the Taos community, and use your own imaginations to make, create and innovate!

Explore over 20 different stations showcasing a range of technologies and materials, including building and woodworking, solar technology, fiber play, puppet-hacking and recycled art, fractal play, robotics, 3D printing, electronics, flying machines, mad machines, tinker toddlers and much much more! Last year, almost 1,000 people explored Invent Event! and took home their wild creations and an appetite for more inventing! This year, we want even more people to join Twirl and the many wonderful community partners who make this event possible. Here's a snapshot of who will be participating this year: PPC Solar, Explora, Weaving Southwest, The Fractal Foundation, Kit Carson Electric, SOMOS, Seconds Eco Store, Inspire, Penasco Theatre, Wholly Rags, Electric Sheep, UNM Taos, FITaos, Rottenstone Pottery, LEAP, Rocky Mountain Youth Corps, Taos STEAM Academy, the STEAM Lab at TISA, KNCE, and True Kids One.

Thank you to Centinel Bank and the Taos News, our first sponsors to come on board this year! If you are, or know of, a local business owner or an individual, who might be interested in sponsoring the event, see Sponsorship Opportunities and Benefits here:

In the lead up to Invent Event!, Twirl is working with 750 students at 8 area elementary schools, exploring fractals and making art. Come check out the culmination of our in-school program at the Invent Event! Thanks to all the awesome teachers and kids for the beautiful contributions to the community fractal installation which will be on display at the event. 

This program is offered free to local and visiting children and families thanks to the generous support from individuals and foundations. Learn how you can support this and other programs like it at
