How to Invent

By Natalie Brady, Jr. Assistant Editor

 

What is an invention? An invention is a new device, method, or process developed from study and experimentation. An invention originates from an idea that then turns into a thought, and then a plan or a picture, and eventually into the actual thing. Anything from something as little as a paper clip to a computer is an invention. A light bulb is an invention. The MyFear Zapper is an invention, as well. The MyFear Zapper was created by yours truly, which helps to get rid of one’s fears. This just goes to show you that anyone, even a nine year old at the time, can invent something.

The process of inventing something begins with, restated, an idea. First, you state a problem you want to fix. An invention is a solution to a problem, need, or wish, in simple terms. When you have the solution, you begin analyzing various ways to create your invention into an actual product. And that’s it – it’s that simple! So what are you waiting for? Get to work on inventing the next big product!
