Let us read a short story about ‘Chester Greenwood’ who designed something
very interesting to overcome his problem.
‘Chester Greenwood lived a long time age in Maine. Chester had a problem. His
ears got very cold in the winter. He set a goal. He wanted to find a way to keep his
ears warm. Chester Greenwood planned to use a heavy wool scarf to stay warm.
He tied it around his head. It kept his ears warm. However, the scarf was itchy. He
wanted to find a better solution to his problem. He planned again. He made ear
flaps to cover his ears. He used different materials and realized wool is the best
suitable for earmuffs. Chester made oval loops out of wire. Then he tried to cover
the loops with soft materials. This kept his ears warm. With the help of what he
had already made, he modified the designed and made a very comfortable band
over the ear muffs.
