Have you ever wondered who invented the potato chip? Or mittens? You'd be surprised to learn they were ordinary people. Here is a book to get you started in inventing.
Thomas Alva Edison reportedly once said invention is "ten percent inspiration and ninety percent perspiration". You'll learn about Edison's inventing style and that of other great inventors such as Leonardo da Vinci and R. Buckminster Fuller. You'll discover how inventions have changed the course of history.
Maybe you would like to form an invention club at school, or organize an invention fair. In this book you'll find a number of ideas to get you started. You may wish to invent new uses for common objects, such as clothespins, paper plates, or the tear-off edges of computer paper. You'll also find activities to promote creativity and techniques for "brainstorming".
There's also useful information on patents and how to apply for them. Read on! Before you know it, you'll be ready to start inventing.
