Presented by Theatreworks USA, students at James H. Boyd Intermediate School attended a special interactive assembly to learn about the life and great inventions of Thomas Alva Edison.

Led by professional actor Patrick Graner, students were navigated through Edison’s early years and most distinguished inventions. With a team of three student audience members, Graner recreated pivotal moments in Edison’s creative process.

Modeled after Edison’s life and work, Garner highlighted four lessons children can use and implement in their own lives. The four key values include hard work, learning from mistakes, viewing problems from a different angle and choosing a job you passionately enjoy.
