   During the Spring semester most Minnesota elementary and middle school students do units on inventing, and for the third year in a row, Doug Cornelius, author, Good News - I Failed: A Story of Inventing in Minnesota is sharing his story in the classroom. 

   On May. 13, Cornelius will share his story with students at Robbinsdale Middle School in Robbinsdale, Minn.  On Mar. 27 he appeared at Randolph Public School in Randolph, Minn. On Feb. 28 he was at St. Croix Montessori School in Stillwater, Minn. He visited with students at Gethsemane Lutheran School in Maplewood, Minn. on Feb. 14. He was at  New Life Academy in Woodbury, Minn. on Feb. 11. 

   Doug's father, Dick Cornelius, invented the drink dispenser still used in bars, stores and restaurants throughout the world when Doug was just a kid. During his lifetime, Dick Cornelius held 180 patents.

   Having grown up around innovation, Doug was inspired to try his hand at inventing. None of the devices he invented ever made it to market, but the story he invented has.

   In "Good News - I Failed: A Story of Inventing in Minnesota," released by Mill City Press in 2012, a young man named Josh goes to visit his grandfather, who is a walking encyclopedia when it comes to information about Minnesota inventors. Josh's grandfather helps him invent an aquarium cleaner he had dreamed up. As they are working, Josh learns about many of the innovations Minnesota inventors came up with that may help with his own project. In the back of the book is an index with detailed information about 80 different Minnesota inventors.
