How To Become an Inventor


(Hint: It seems to involve model trains.)
How to Become an Inventor offers a series of experiments like “The Magnetic Swan” (the would-be inventor can move it around on the water with a magnet-tipped wand) that introduce the reader to the most likely fields for future discoveries (such as magnetism).
Anyone looking to jump-start their career as an inventor will want to look for this on sale at the Historical Society Book Sale on December 3rd and 4th.
