Everyone learns in school that George Washington Carver developed new uses for the peanut, but few parents, teachers or students know much more about the man and his career.

The Henry Ford is hosting an exhibit this winter, until the end of February, which fills in the blanks about Carver’s life and career.

From his birth in slavery, to his career as a scientist, Carver’s story will inspire young people to think differently about technology, and who can become an inventor.

 The exhibit is free with museum admission and runs through February 27, 2011.
