Greetings Infomaniacs,

Thanks for joining me today! Can you imagine what the world 
would be like if people didn't invent things? We wouldn't 
have cars, phones, computers, and a variety of other stuff 
that we rely on every single day. Let's learn about how a 
few of these inventions got started...

Enjoy!
Melissa

white screen.
