This accession consists of records that document the Lemelson Center exhibitions Nobel Voices: Celebrating 100 Years of the Nobel Prize and Invention at Play. Nobel Voices: Celebrating 100 Years of the Nobel Prize explored the motivation and vision of Nobel laureates and the history of Alfred Bernhard Nobel and his prize. Invention at Play was structured as an interactive exhibition that examined the similarities between the ways children and adults play and the creative processes used by innovators in science and technology. Opening in 2002, Invention at Play (IAP) was both a traveling exhibition and permanent exhibition at the National Museum of American History (NMAH) until it closed in 2011. Materials include correspondence, memoranda, permissions, proposals, publicity records, and clippings.
