Creativity Abounds at Fourth-Grade Invention Convention
Posted 12/19/2018 10:00AM

 

After studying Thomas Edison and various inventions, fourth-grade classes brainstormed different problems that needed solving and worked together to develop potential solutions. They also pondered how inventions could emerge from combining two existing items. 

Students were then paired with a peer and were responsible for coming up with an original idea which they sketched and explained when filling out a "Student Patent Application."  Once approved, they designed a tri-fold board advertising their product.  Many also created company logos, t-shirts, and even slogans and jingles.  

Fourth-grade parents and Lower School classes attended Invention Convention where they got to hear the student inventors pitch their ideas.  Fourth graders were thoroughly engaged throughout this student-driven project. It allowed them to demonstrate creativity, independence, and ownership, and they thrived!
