This image is from a national competition to create the most complicated process for a simple task. Funny! For what it’s worth, I think this type of exercise is great for fostering creativity and outside-the-box thinking. Hopefully, the next project these kids tackle will be a slightly more practical innovation. :)

    I like the idea of science coexisting with a sense of humor. These things are challenging and they encourage the inventor to be silly, which is always cool.
