Traveling Program

The Thomas Edison Center at Menlo Park offers a traveling program (TECMP) that is designed to introduce the incredible inventions of Thomas Edison to those who have an interest in learning about the “Wizard of Menlo Park.” Edison was a pioneer in so many fields, and he managed to streamline the process of invention during his auspicious career. The Menlo Park historic site is synonymous with research and development because it was on this here that Edison conceived and fabricated 400 of his most important inventions within a period of six years. Some of his most famous inventions that were created on the Christie Street site were the phonograph, the perfection of incandescent lighting, and a practical method of conducting electrical distribution.


Our program includes a PowerPoint presentation with a lecture and discussion.
