"Where to begin... students seeing that they have what it takes to be an inventor - Finding problems to solve in their day to day lives..... Creating an invention, AMAZING! "
"Learning that there is literature out there to support Invention Ed is great!"
" I'm encouraged that there are educators that see and value, the importance of this type of education.
Our learners will benefit! When we model these habits and actions-- it just becomes who they are."
