Science, Technology, Creative Thinking
Share the information in the introduction. Explain that anyone could invent something new if they really wanted to.
Explain that often, inventions come from trying to solve a problem that gets people thinking, ‘There must be a better way to do this!’
Ask students to either select one of the invention ideas below or to think of something that would be a cool invention.
For example, what could students invent that would…
- make it easier for astronauts to eat their food in zero gravity?
- help you clean up your room faster?
- make school buses safer for kids (besides wearing seatbelts)?
Ask each student to create a design and instructions for use. Then invite them to share their ideas with the class.
