Creating Models and Testing Models at W. Brown!

The scholars at William H. Brown are greatly enjoying creating inventions via the Chicago Invention Convention design process. We studied different inventors and inventions. 

The scholars are fascinated by the inventions of Madam C.J. Walker, who was one of the first American women to become a millionaire without a family inheritance, and created inventions tailored to African-American hair. 

The children have thought of a problem they wish to address and brainstormed inventions to solve their problem of choice. Today, the scholars created small models of their invention using materials including playdough and did tests. The students cannot wait to build their "real" inventions. We are thrilled to participate in the Chicago Invention Convention!
