Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Gr 6 Up-Sobey offers a wealth of information on the nature of the invention process and on traits of successful inventors-just what is needed to motivate students to turn problem-solving ideas into viable inventions. The many black-and-white photographs of students with their creations add interest and may even suggest other possible ventures. The book includes information on how to get started as well as actual suggestions for possible projects. Chapters on national invention contests (with addresses and Web sites) and related programs and organizations are valuable resources for both students and educators seeking guidance in organizing a local invention contest. The final chapter covers how to transform an invention into a marketable product, including information on patents. A refreshing alternative for science-fair assignments.- Carolyn Angus, The Claremont Graduate School, CA Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
