Have a good idea? Want to be a part of the Invention Fair at CDM? Did you know the Post-It Note was invented by accident? Read More! Post-It Note Discovery:  http://www.todayifoundout.com/index.php/2011/11/post-it-notes-were-invented-by-accident/

The Invention Fair is an optional activity for all Kindergarten through Sixth Grade students. All work will be done at home. Being involved in the Invention Fair or going through the process of inventing, develops creative thinking, reading, writing, researching, constructing and presenting skills besides the learning of important science skills. Students will be introduced to problem-solving, creative designing, decision-making and risk-taking strategies. This in turn will lead to an increase in motivation, self esteem and greater confidence and hopefully lead to possible career choices in Science and Technology.
