What’s happening here?


Sometimes, you only have a few clues to help you figure out a situation.

What are some things you have to do before inventing a solution to a problem?

Meet Kiki.


Kiki has an exciting life but she finds herself in all kinds of weird situations!

What’s Kiki’s problem?

SPIKE Invention-Squad Help Step03-Program - en-us
  1. Read the story in the comment box
  2. Play this program, and start story No.1.
  3. Position Kiki in front of each colored brick.

You will hear 3 sounds that will create a story. Listen carefully and let your imagination decide what’s the problem.

Here’s another story.

  1. Play the story No.2.
  2. Make a list of all the possible problems Kiki could be having in the story created by these new sounds. 

Meet up with another team and compare your lists.

What’s your story?


Change the sounds again. This time you’ll choose your own sounds, so be creative!

Make a list of possible problems Kiki could be having in this new story and have another team do the same.

Compare your lists. Did you make the same predictions?

How did you do? 


Think about what you did well and what you could’ve done better.

Congratulations! You’ve taken the first step in becoming an elite member of the Invention Squad.
