Inventing Modern America: From the Microwave to the Mouse

Excerpts and supplements from Lemelson-MIT Program's 2001 book Inventing Modern America, from the Microwave to the Mouse are housed in this colorful, fun Website. The book celebrates the best of American ingenuity and inventiveness, profiling inventors of everyday objects such as Kevlar (inventor Stephanie Kwolek) and the electronic telephone switchboard (inventor Erna Schneider). The book's Website gives facts about some of these inventors, furnishes color .pdf pages from the book, has invention-related games such as "Which Came First?" (e.g., neon or fluorescent lights?), discusses the Lemelson-MIT Program, and gives links to other sites on innovation.
