Teachers play a tremendous role in teaching our children not only the basics of science, math and reading, but of creative and critical thinking skills that will help them become productive 21st century adults.
Nothing teaches like a first hand experience. One invention idea for kids in the classroom is to invite a local inventor to come and present to your class. To locate one in your neighborhood you can go online to the USPTO web site at www.uspto.gov and conduct a search for ‘inventor city'. The United Inventor's Association also lists local chapters on their web site at www.uiausa.com.
