Boy brings special attention to Invention Lab

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – An Albuquerque boy held a unique birthday bash for his 12th birthday by bringing attention to the Invention Lab and raising money for it.

Gabriel Barker, 12, is one of the founders. The lab brings smart kids together to start inventing things to help problems of today and tomorrow.

He had quite the turnout at Wednesday’s event, even the mayor attended.

Barker has some really big goals. The Invention Lab is like Innovate ABQ but for kids. He and his partners are hoping to raise money for things like 3D printers, computers and other supplies.

Their lab is set up in the downtown innovation corridor.
