Invention Connects School Subjects

The study of invention has connective roots to all other subjects. Inventions happen at a certain point in history. Many inventions are scientific and mathematical, no matter how ancient they are. They often contain artistic elements and reflect greatly on the culture of their time.

Invention is a great way to teach wholistically. Take the battery as an example. The Baghdad battery is believed to be about 2000 years old.Scientists believe the Baghdad battery was used to electroplate items such as putting a layer of one metal (gold) onto the surface of another (silver), a method still practiced in Iraq today.
