Invention Factory

Overview: Have you ever said, “I have a great idea for an  invention?” Well, here is your chance! Based on the hit show Shark Tank, teams have the opportunity to conceptualize, design, and build a functional new invention that performs a valuable business function or just a fun wacky idea that may make millions! 

Objective: For product creation, each team will receive a complete building kit  with select materials such as plastics, plumbing, PVC, hobby, wire,  rope, glue, duct tape as well as a shared Resource Store where teams can  access additional supplies via a trivia challenge. Participants will  design and build their inventions followed by marketing teams that will  present these innovations at an “Innovation Fair” (think tradeshow)  where peers will vote on the best projects!

The conclusion will  have the top teams presenting their inventions to the entire group where  an overall ‘best product’ will be selected!   Creativity, teamwork and  group problem solving are key takeaways to this exciting activity.
