Inventor's Month Banner 

Hey Chino!  Did you know May is National Inventor's Month?  This annual celebration was created to recognize and celebrate the wonderful contributions bestowed by many inventors.  Inventor's Month recognizes the curiosity and imagination of people and it encourages people to become more creative and innovative.  

Therefore, this month we would like to challenge you and your family to get creative and together create a Rube Goldberg experiment to drop soap into a person's hand.  Here are some helpful link to help you get started.
