Become an Inventor | Atlanta Science Festival

Research is often based on a simple premise: identifying a problem and developing a solution. Become an inventor by thinking of a real-world problem you would like to solve.

To complete the mission, sketch and label your invention on a piece of paper and submit a photo of it in the app. Watch the video for inspiration from Mercer Innovation Center Director Stephanie Howard, who will explain the process of invention and share some examples of inventions that have come through the Mercer Innovation Center.

This mission is brought to you by Mercer University and Mercer Health Sciences Center, proud sponsors of Science ATL.

The “Become an Inventor” activity is part of the 2021 Atlanta Science Festival‘s City Science Quest. Learn how to participate.
