American industry championed STEM innovation and production during World War II, making equipment and materials that helped win the war in spite of huge challenges. What can we learn about problem solving from World War II?
In this archived webinar -- perfect for students in grades 5-8 -- students will answer this question and learn how WWII problem-solvers modified existing innovations for the war effort by exploring some of the Museum’s coolest and biggest macro-artifacts. STEM Specialist Rob Wallace and Distance Learning Specialist Shelbie Johnson guide students through an inquiry-based Museum tour to uncover how WWII innovators used the "adopt, adapt, and apply" technique to modify technologies for use during the war.
