Happy birthday, Thomas Edison!

Today would be the 166th birthday of Thomas Edison, well known for inventions such as the lightbulb and phonograph. But he also developed the motion picture, which apparently began with a sneeze.

Kids can explore some of Edison’s ideas in Thomas Edison for Kids: His Life and Ideas: 21 Activities.
