Inventing and Patent Creation will dive into the thought process of designers and inventors by researching components important to them and how they were able to make their ideas profitable.
This class will introduce students to the steps of inventing and how to officially own an idea for an invention. Students will examine the basic research components important to researchers, designers and inventors. Throughout the course, students will learn about the importance of brainstorming, developing a line of logic, using reputable citations and sources, and how to conduct a proper literature and prior art review. By the end of the course, students will have a practical experience by drafting their own patent application for an original invention idea.
