Young Niko, Child Inventor (Grades K-3 and Grades 4-5) History,
Science
His work, over 150 years ago helped create the technologies we enjoy today. As an adult, his impact on our modern world was profound. But Nikola Tesla, great man of science started out as Niko, impulsive and curious child. In this program students learn of Niko’s early explorations and their connections to his greatest achievements later in life. They explore the characteristics and scientific attitudes possessed by inventors and scientists.  In Grades K-3 students replicate a model of young Niko’s Maybug invention. In Grades 4-5 students identify a problem and begin the planning and design of an invention to solve it.
