Let's Invent!

This month we have presented several contests for our rocketeers to tap into their creative talents. One theme that these contests have in common is inventing. With this theme in mind, we took some advice from the one and only, Kid President.

So what are you waiting, for?! Let's invent! Well said, Kid President- we will do just that. Here is a line up of a few of our contests.

In a Word- Ceate the longest list of words for the word: Industrial. We will submit our entries to Calliope Magazine.

Values Essay- Write an essay about a barrier in your life and how values such as courage, determination, and perseverance helped overcome that barrier. This one is in honor of the values that Jackie Robinson used to live by during his career. All entries will be submitted to Appleseed Magazine. 

Doodle for Google- Design a doodle that represents an invention that would make the world a better place.

3M Young Scientist Challenge- Create a video about an idea or innovation that could solve an everyday problem.
