Catalyst of the Invention Revolution
Uplift, Inc. created Catalyst of the Invention Revolution Play Date to highlight that children naturally synthesize, analyze, create and transfer knowledge while in play. Hence, they can master science and its problem solving if presented in a format beyond pure theory. Furthermore African Americans come from a history of inventors. When we dominated the skilled trades in the 1900s, we invented so many things. Here is a list of inventors we are celebrating this year:
||Locomotive Engine Lubricator
|Granville T. Woods
||Railroad Telegraph System
||Heating Furnace for Entire Building
|Madame CJ Walker
||Typewriter and Mechanical Toys
At Catalyst of the Invention Revolution Play Date, students are not aware they are learning. Students learn the concepts of logic, inventing, physics, wind power, construction/ building, economics, profitability, mathematical patterns and pure creativity BRAIN-BASED LEARNING research states students retain approximately 80-85% of lessons during this play compared to pure lecture where the retention is only 5-10%.
Uplift, Inc. constructed the Catalyst of the Invention Revolution Play Date as Inventing requires play and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics). It is the ultimate BRAIN-BASED LEARNING activity. We believe INVENTING is the key to:
- success on standardized exams;
- reducing America's engineer, programmer and scientist shortage.
- attracting African Americans into STEAM.
