These Kids Are Really on the Ball! Invention Competition Winners
Tech Directions, v67 n10 p20-23 May 2008
Judge Harry T. Roman, an electrical engineer and inventor himself, has selected the best entries in the 2007-2008 "Tech Directions" Inventors Award Competition. This year's challenge called for students to devise new uses for the common Ping-Pong ball. Of the results, the judge notes "The ideas submitted were most interesting, with a high number of duplicate ideas. These students' teachers are obviously paying much attention to creativity and inventive thought and activities in class." This paper presents the winners of this year's competition, along with excerpts from the winning entries and comments from the judge.
