Invention at Play: Invention Playhouse


From the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of American History comes this wonderful resource for developing logical thinking, problem-solving, and collaboration - in students of any age level. There are four interactive puzzles - Puzzle Blocks, Cloud Dreamer, Word Play, and the especially addictive Tinker Ball - and all lend themselves to collaborative decision-making, innovative thinking, and a lot of just plain-old fun!
