Eureka! Reading Quest

In Eureka! Student Inventor the class became contestants on a reality game show. Lab teams worked together to conquer challenges focused on collaboration, researchknowledge, documentation, failure, and pitching a product. As part of the process, students had to research 8 inventors and their inventions, as well as learn about the invention process. Additionally they had to use their writing skills to persuade the network not to cancel the show mid-season. Judges Thomas Edison, George Washington Carver, Jacques Cousteau, and Hedy Lamarr presided over each episode giving advice to the student inventors. The grand finale required each student to discover a problem faced by people around them, invent something to solve that problem, and then give a sales pitch to the studio audience. Many inventions showed creativity and ingenuity, and many pitches were quite persuasive. When all elements were considered, however, Norris was named the Eureka! Student Inventor Champion!
