Students worked in small groups to practice the invention process using Tinkertoys. They received a container of parts, had time to explore the parts and see how they fit together, and then create a blueprint of an item they could create using the Tinkertoy parts. After creating the blueprint, the students used the parts to make the item and then presented to the rest of the class. The Tinkertoy activity was a great oppurtunity for the students to see how the process of inventing works: brainstorming, designing, creating, troubleshooting, and finally, presenting!
