Young Inventors

There’s nothing better than sparking a student’s excitement and intrigue. I did this in the beginning of the year to kick off our science class and get students thinking! They worked with their pod members, and let me tell you… they LOVED it!

The Assignment: Create an invention that will make the world a better place using only the utensils I’ve provided.

The Tools: InventionInstructions document, a paper bag, plastic spoon, 2 paper clips, 5 toothpicks, 2 binder clips, 3 rubber bands, 1 red solo cup

Inventions Created: Better target practice for police force, cup with automatic water filter for third world countries, elevator with couches and wifi, shooting game for kids, a napkin/spoon combo, and the list goes on!
