Invention Convention

This is my first year doing an "Invention Convention" instead of a science fair. The idea is to get students to actually invent or improve an invention and to present their prototypes to the class. Anyone has experience organizing this type of event? Are there any online resources I can use? Thanks!See More

Hi Leidy - Welcome aboard! I wanted to tell you a little about MSP2 - we are using this NING network as a place where educators can connect with each other (through answers to profile questions and the advanced Members search) and also as a way to connect educators with exemplary resources and professional development opportunities.

If you look on the Main page - you'll see MSP2 resources in the upper left hand box - we have resource guides where we have sifted and sorted and contextualized resources on topics important to middle school math and science teachers, an archive of all of our past webinars, the ability to search the MSP2 collection, and pages of teacher and student opportunities and grants. Our newest resource guides are Teaching With Trade Books</a> which includes lessons for science AND math classes and Science Misconceptions.

We've got some great upcoming events - check them out in the Events section. We also have a MSP2 Book Club - our next book is Finding Mrs. Warnecke. You can read more about the book and find out when we are meeting by going to the MSP2 Book Club group.

Please don't hesitate to post a question or comment. We are always looking for feedback and new ideas for PD opportunities and people who would like to present.

So glad you joined - Kim
