About This Class

Everyday Inventions!
We all use light bulbs or erasers almost every day, right?  Ever wonder how they came to be?  What gave someone the idea to use tree sap to erase pencil marks?  Why do we have Gatorade?  From water repellent nylon on your sneakers to that bubble gum you’re chewing, they all have stories.  Our class will explain Who, What, Where, When, and Why as you recreate products we use every day.
