SCAMPER is a set of strategies to break out of a “thinking block.” When a North Salem student does not know what to do next, the SCAMPER strategies can serve as helpful tools to let the ideas flow:

S = Substitute ideas
C = Combine ideas
A = Adapt an idea
M = Modify an idea
P = Put a part of the idea to another use
E = Eliminate a part of the idea
R = Reverse your thinking (come at the idea from the opposite direction)
