What a week it was! Inventionland was filled with Girl Scout troops from around the area and students from North Allegheny! Keep reading to learn more.

It’s a New Year and with a brand-new calendar comes ample opportunities to invite eager groups through the doors of our 61,000-square foot invention factory.

On Monday, Inventionland tour guide extraordinaire, Sam Sandora led not one, not two, not three, but four separate groups of Girl Scout Troops around Inventionland!

Check out this packed schedule!

8:30 – 9:30 a.m. – Bright and early, the Inventionland doors opened to Girl Scout Troop #52735 from Pittsburgh, PA.

 Here’s a quick fun fact. See the man in the blue? That’s Joey, who was a designer right here at Inventionland several years ago. In fact, Joey led many of the tours while he was here!

“He got to visit Inventionland again as one of the parents of the Girl Scouts,” Sandora said. “He thought it’d be fun to come back and see what’s going on. His office used to be in the Concept Kitchen.”

And this old tour guide had some good things to say about Sandora. “You make it really fun!” Joey said about the tours.

10:00 – 11:00 a.m. – Almost immediately following, Girl Scout Troop #53238 and #52466 from Hampton, PA also got the grand tour.

1:00 – 2:00 p.m. – By the afternoon, more scouts were ready to navigate their way through our fantastic facility with a group of boys and girls from Wexford, PA.

2:30 – 3:30 p.m. – And last but certainly not least, one more Girl Scout troop came through later in the afternoon.

Though Monday was a fun-filled day packed with lots of great ideas and innovation, the fun didn’t stop there!

In fact, by midweek on Wednesday, January 30th, Inventionland opened its doors again for another great group of young innovators. This time, our invention factory was open to Carson Middle School students from Pittsburgh’s North Allegheny School District.

“They were in the gifted program,” Sandora said. “They were really smart and had a whole bunch of questions.”

You might think that was a lot of tours for one week, but, there’s no such thing as too many tours here at Inventionland. The week concluded on Thursday with Dubois Business College students, who are also Inventionland Institute students! The group was led by tour guide Tony Allen!
