A mixed-method approach was used to investigate and analyze the data. The results of this study indicated a significant increase in their inventive abilities. The qualitative data reported that students benefited from learning by this approach. Findings of this study can be used to determine how innovation and creativity can be fostered through the Invention Learning Approach teaching students how to be more innovative while solving real world problems.
