Below is an example for the "Inventor's Convention" Task Card:
A Big Chance! The International Inventor’s Convention Committee (IICC) is hosting its annual convention in three months. The IICC is looking for innovative people to submit to them ideas they have for inventions. If you are chosen by the IICC, you will be asked to share your invention at a booth at the convention. This is a great opportunity for you to show your creativity!
Invention Name & Idea:
The International Inventor’s Convention Committee is waiting to hear from you. They are interested in learning about the name of your invention and the impact your invention could have on the world.
After you have decided on the name and what your invention is, you will then be asked to submit a letter to the IICC to try to persuade them to accept your idea. Your letter should include a description of your invention, the name, who it would benefit, and why you belong at the convention to showcase it. Refer to the example and student handout for specific guidelines on how to write your persuasive letter.
Invention Ticket Stub:
Once you have an idea, a name, and have written a persuasive letter, you will need to design a colorful ticket stub. This ticket stub would allow 50 people access to your booth area. Be sure to include the name, a brief description, and a picture on your stub.
