Looking ahead to January 31, 2016, we are planning the opening of the new exhibit, Edison & Rubber: A Scientific Quest, although visitors and Members are welcome to peek in and watch progress during installation. Throughout this project, our young Edison Ford Emerging Inventors have enjoyed ongoing lectures and exploring the many activities of the exhibit. Here are a couple of our inventors, joining Harvey Firestone under the mural of the Banyan Tree.
Lastly, please remember that our mission is to educate the upcoming generation of inventors. The Edison Ford education program runs largely on contributions and grants from Members and patrons like you. Many of our Members have participated and also engaged their families. We are very proud of this stellar project and its growth.

Please respond to the Annual Contribution request you will be receiving in the mail shortly. Our contributions have
varied from $60,000 to $100. With these funds we are able to support Education Faculty, Scholarships, and equipment.
