Helping Bring the Sunshine - Inventing for the Protagonist

(View Complete Item Description)

Have you ever imagined what life would be like if you only could see and feel the sun once every seven years? How would you feel if you were alienated and ostracized because you are the only child on planet Venus who has memory of the sun. These are questions generated after reading Ray Bradbury’s All Summer in A Day. Students were asked to create an invention/concept that would assist the protagonist with their aforementioned conflicts. They created wonderful concept inventions by using the library makerspace which included Little Bits!
