Calling All Minds by Temple Grandin
Kites, boats and golf balls are just some of the inventions Temple Grandin talks about in this book for young inventors-in-the-making. She talks about her own inventing during her childhood, as well as the different ways of looking at the world that can lead to innovation.
How do kites fly? Why do boats float? What are those dimples on golf balls for? Renowned autism spokesperson and scientist Temple Grandin answers these questions and more by examining the science and processes that created inventions such as these, and gives young inventors-in-the-making ways to think about and understand tinkering, fiddling, and innovating. She even gives insight into her own inventions from her childhood. Calling All Minds is more than a guide to invention, it’s a guide to the different ways we can look at the world.
