Little Inventors

Awesome Ocean Inventions!

The Macomb Intermediate School District in partnership with the MISTEM Network and the Detroit Zoological Society are launching MISD’s Mission Blue: Oceans!

We are inviting creative 4th graders from Macomb County to think up and draw invention ideas to protect our water resources! We believe that our students are a force for good and their actions have the power to change the world.

The oceans cover more than 70% of our planet, and they are essential to all life on Earth. This connectivity reminds us that the interlinking nature of the ocean is important to keeping all other ecosystems healthy. But unfortunately, pollution, overpopulation, and industrialization, have taken their toll on our world.

Starting now, our students can build a better future for our oceans, with science and literacy, invention and innovation at the heart of it all. The more we understand our oceans and their connectivity to the world, the better job we can do to get them back to better health.

At the end of this project, a few inventions will be chosen to be made real and will be showcased in June 2021.

With thanks to our delivery partners, teachers and future engineers
