Inventor Projects (Tuesday & Thursday morning)This week some of the students in the Tuesday morning class presented their finished projects. Their classmates listened to the presentations, observed the projects, asked questions, and left feedback. Each student was asked to leave a written comment on one thing the presenters did well with their project and one thing that could be improved. We talked about providing helpful and meaningful comments. The presenters did a very good job.
Chase, Zack and Charlie presented their diorama on the inventor of the parking meter, Carleton Cole Magee. It was clear from their presentation that they learned quite a bit about Carleton Magee's life and what lead him to invent the parking meter!
Lyndsy did her project on James Dyson, the inventor of the Dual Cyclone bagless vacuum cleaner. Lyndsy chose to do her project as a radio interview. You can listen to her radio interview below.
I look forward to future inventor project presentations, and I hope to post more of them here!
