Innovators and inventors do a lot of making, tinkering, exploring and pondering. This course is designed to give students an opportunity to practice and learn important concepts through creating. By taking on challenges such as “create a fall-proof skateboard” or “create an all-weather hat,” students will explore art, science and engineering problems using a variety of everyday materials. As a final project, students will present an innovation or invention using a platform similar to the television show “Shark Tank.”
