What if you could actually be watching at a time in history when an important invention or discovery was being made?
The Discovery Machine is based on the premise, “What if?”, and follows the mind-bending experiences of two very creative 9th graders. They accidentally discover a way to travel back in time to the exact moment of discovery of a famous invention or idea.
In their adventures Maria and Phillip actually meet the inventor of Levi’s, visit some of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient world as they were being created, observe fire being discovered, and scrape through dangerous harrowing experiences traveling through time, including a personal tragedy, a breath-taking resolution at the end, and a hint of more to come.
