Reeny- Weather Update: BrainStorms Rolling In—Crazy Hair Days Ahead!!!
Good thing that Mr. Einstein and I agree on that one! Because I think imagination is gonna be the key to developing my innovation!
My innovation is supposed to address a problem. When you start to think about solving a problem, it’s important to take the cause of the problem into consideration. Or causes. Narrowing the list down to the three most important was so challenging, because I know that to have a really good invention, you need to have a clear vision of what problem you’re targeting, and not bite off more than you can chew!
I think working on my project has given me an idea of why scientists, engineers, and innovators, like the people at 3M, do the work that they do. When people come across problems in the world, they feel a need to solve the problem—they get passionate about the problem. This isn’t something you can just ignore and hope that somebody does something about it—you just have to do something yourself! The passion that these people feel for improving the world makes them do all the research, all the prototyping, and all the testing involved in creating world-rocking inventions. All the big and little things that make the world a cleaner, more efficient, and happier place.
I’m joining these groovy people in their quest to make the world a better place! Every week goes by so fast! So much information, so little time! But I’ve been researching and brainstorming like crazy!
I’m really enjoying the process of taking bits of science and technology and comparing them with my ideas, kind of “trying them on for size.” I’m really expanding my knowledge-base, and I’m keeping my mind totally open to all of my options! In my future, I see lots of brainstorming, TONS of research, and possibly a few “Einsteinian” hair-days, and I can’t wait!
The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination. --Albert Einstein
