Invention Showcase – forms are due Wednesday, March 15th

Is your child a problem solver? Have them consider problems they or someone they know faces. Have them think of an invention to solve the problem and enter it in the Invention Showcase! If they want to, they can make a working model of their idea, otherwise a model just showing what it would look like is fine. They will also make a three-panel poster of their work on the invention and write up the inventor’s log telling about the process of making the invention. If this sounds fun, fill out the “Intent to Invent” form that went home in the Wednesday folder and return it to your classroom teacher.  If you missed the deadline don’t worry, the deadline has been extended until March 15.  When your child returns the form, they will get a packet with all the detailed information they need to enter their idea in the Invention Showcase.
