Why Invention Projects?

You never know if you are teaching the next great inventor. Teaching about inventions will allow your students to explore their creative sides, and using projects is a way to guide your students through the process of creating an invention through how to get a patent. The project ideas presented here will help pique student interest and engagement in inventions. Your students will enjoy thinking creatively as they come up with the next big invention.

Research Project

In the invention process, after coming up with an idea, it's essential to research to find out if the invention already exists. This project gives students an opportunity to look for inventions that are the same or very similar to the one they are thinking of creating. This project requires computers with internet access and takes approximately 1-1.5 hours.
