Victorian Inventors Balloon Debate
Due Monday 13th June
In a balloon debate there are three people in a balloon that is sinking fast. If all three stay in the balloon it will crash and all will face certain death. The only way to keep it afloat is to throw out two of the people in the balloon. Who will it be?
You have to argue to stay in. The most persuasive person stays. You are either Thomas Edison (inventor of the light bulb), George Stephenson (inventor of the first steam train) or Alexander Graham Bell (inventor of the telephone). We will choose your character in class.
Make notes explaining why your invention has been so important for the world and why you should be saved. Write a short speech to persuade your audience to save you. You might want to think about points the other inventors will bring up and think of some answers.
We will have the debate next week.
