Invent America! Student Handbook Grades K-8.
United States Patent Model Foundation, Alexander, VA.
The Invent America program addresses the need to provide K-8 students with opportunities to learn critical and creative thinking skills through the process of inventing. Students apply problem-solving skills as they turn their own creative ideas into inventions. It is an effort to integrate the curriculum, help students synthesize knowledge, and provide hands-on experience in the scientific process. The Invent America! program consists of handbooks for students, teachers and program administrators, which can be used to develop a school/classroom invention program; a catalog of recommended books to supplement the program; national and regional conferences to train educators in techniques to help students develop thinking skills; and inservice programs throughout the country to help schools begin Invent America! programs. This student handbook contains information useful to begin the inventing process. Included are a discussion of inventors and inventions, steps to inventing, and ideas for naming and displaying the project. (MVL)
