I need help with my entry essay,
"The Twentieth Century brought an explosion of discoveries and inventions in math, science, and technology. Choose one such discovery or invention, identify it, and name the people responsible. Then explain how this discovery or invention has influenced your life. Limit your response to one typed page." I don't want to use computers, internet, or television, because they are all too general, and come on, who's going to accept a kid writing about television? I can't think of a good invention or idea, and the radio just hasn't influenced me enough (even though it has had a big impact on my life).
What about the zipper? Always my favorite tech story. :-)
Or the camera phone? Quite recent, and there's a great story about its invention, which you can find in several places.
