Mike's lesson is designed to allow the students to do a “rapid research” project on a specific selected invention/innovation. The purpose is to encourage exploration and make the process of research fun. The normal requirements of citations and bibliographies are not required for the purpose of this process.  The use of Wikipedia is allowed, but if it is used, other sources must also be used to validate Wikipedia's information.
