Design Your Own Invention
Thomas Edison kept his ideas, notes and drawings in laboratory notebooks. Today the park has over 3000 of his and his worker's notebooks. When an idea came to Edison, he would sketch it out in one of the his notebooks. Sometimes he would continue and research the idea, other times he would put it aside for later. What ideas or inventions have you thought about? Now is your chance to capture those ideas. You can save it for a later date or begin to research your idea and see if you can create a prototype. You can draw your idea on a blank sheet of paper or use the form here. Don't forget to name your invention and date it.
