We visited the Edison Explorer Invention Convention which was held at the Women’s
We saw many children with their inventions - games which comprised of at least one simple machine. The games were quite impressive. For a moment, I thought I was in another country, as I have never seen such a programme before. For more info on their programme, please contact Edison Enterprises. Edison Enterprises is founded by Amy Delph whom I just got acquainted with at a recent camping trip.
|The boys and their friend, Adrian who was demonstrating his invention|
E tried some games. He was brave and just winged it. S on the other hand was afraid of failure, after he tried one game and didn't win (whereas his younger brother won) and he dared not attempt again.
|Rolling the car on a slope into the target|
This marble roll game was invented by the girl sitting beside E, who demonstrated how to play. My boys loved this game.
As we were walking back to the car, S said, “Mummy, now we don’t have to buy games. We can make our own games.”
