10th annual Inventgenuity Festival inspires kids to get creative

Posted: Updated:
BROOKLYN -

Young people were getting creative this weekend at the 10th annual Inventgenuity Festival at the Beam Center in Dumbo.

Some of the fun at this year's festival involved creating two gigantic flip books. They are solar powered, and will be installed in the Dumbo neighborhood.

The Beam Center is a Brooklyn-based educational center that brings young people together to help them learn different techniques that will help them in their futures.

Organizers say they hope that kids who attend the event will learn to believe in themselves.

The flip books will be installed this June near the archway under the Manhattan Bridge.
