REVIEW:
Have you ever wondered who thought of that? or why didn't I think of that? This Web site is devoted to those ideas that have made our lives easier. Anyone interested in inventions and inventors will find a wealth of information here. For the budding inventor, there is information about patents, a wish list of inventions visitors to the site would like, and a resource center for additional information. History Facts & Myths is divided into five subsections: Invention Facts & Myths, Inventor Profile, Innovation Timeline, Invention Trivia Quiz, and Hey, What About. Students can take the tour and view all the inventions from "aspirin to zippers" in Invention Facts & Myths, learn about inventors from Babbage to Zeppelin in Inventor Profile, take an interactive quiz, or send in their questions to be answered in Hey, What About.
