Tucker Shea sat in the new Cade Museum for Creativity and Invention building with a construction hat perched on his head.
Surrounded by a crowd of people, the 12-year-old displayed his invention — a hat with a light bulb connected to the top that would illuminate with the press of a button. Tucker 3-D printed parts of the invention himself. Whenever he got an idea, his hat would glow and the crowd would erupt in a chorus of oohs and aahs.
The pre-teen was one of 200 guests who gathered Thursday at the Cade Museum, located at 904 S. Main St., to celebrate the third annual Inventivity Bash and see the newly unveiled building, said Leslie Ladendorf, the museum operations director.
