Article excerpt

Invention and Innovation prepares students with opportunities to apply the design process in the invention or innovation of a new product, process, or system. In this course, students learn all about invention and innovation. They have opportunities to study the history of inventions and innovations, including their impacts on society. They learn about the core concepts of technology and about the various approaches to solving problems, including engineering design and experimentation. Students apply their creativity in the invention and innovation of new products, processes, or systems. Finally, students learn about how various inventions and innovations impact their lives. Students participate in engineering design activities to understand how criteria, constraints, and processes affect designs. Students are involved in activities and experiences where they learn about brainstorming, visualizing, modeling, constructing, testing, experimenting, and refining designs. Students also develop skills in researching for information, communicating design information, and reporting results (ITEEA: MRE, 2015).

The curriculum is broken down into units called Knowledge and Skill Builders (KSBs). There are five KSBs in the Invention and Innovation curriculum. Each KSB contains at least two or more activities that will engage students and hopefully pique their interest in creating inventions of their own. …
