Walking the Path of Inventions--New Special Program!
January 1, 2016 through December 31, 2018
Imagine taking a stroll down Mercer Street in Princeton, NJ going by the home of Albert Einstein picturing him relaxing and working on one of his famous relativity theories.
Now you are strolling through the gorgeous Cornell University Campus in Ithaca, NY, where cutting edge agronomy research occurs on a regular basis. You practically feel the knowledge jump out of the building as you pass by.
Another walking adventure in beautiful Dover, DE takes you by the historical Richardson and Robbins Cannery building made nationally famous for the key opened can.
The list goes on and on! What fun and interesting knowledge you will gain with Walking the Path of Inventions. It is easy and exciting to complete the program with only 20 different walks. The walk qualifiers include but not limited to: walks going by well known inventors’/researchers’ homes, gravesites, labs, workplaces or museums; walks with well known inventors’/researchers’ named streets, parks, statues, and building as part of the route; walks going by universities and colleges with published research or notable work on invention that have taken or presently are taking place.
The qualifying events must be 20 different AVA sanctioned walks but you can use the same inventor/researcher multiple times.
