The PowerPoint Templates have been created to make formatting student presentations simple at the culmination of this activity. Students need only to replace indicator words (ex. (Inventor Name). )and insert pictures to develop a presentation to share with their classmates. If the ppt is not compatible with your system, let us know in the "ask a question" and we will make a template for you.
This lesson is complimentary as a literacy study during the Materials Of Properties Engineering Challenge. However, can also be used separately to enhance students’ use of technology and knowledge of biographies and famous inventors throughout history!
