Invention Convention & Science Fair

Mr Taff provided this recap of the Junior High Invention Convention (7th) and Science Fair (6th and 8th) which were held last week. There were over 150 participants in the convention and fair.

The Inventions were impressive in their array of ideas. The inventions were ranged from making life easier, to having fun, or to practice a sport. The students presented their inventions to a judge as the culmination to the four month long process. As part of the exploration of the scientific method for inventions the students also created trading cards of 15 different inventions throughout history. These trading cards included their own which someday we are sure will be very valuable!!!

The winners of the Invention Convention are:

  • 1st Place: Angela S, Alexis M, Maia C
  • 2nd Place: Quin C, Tayvia R, Ariana K, Luz Z, Jayson C, William B
  • 3rd Place: Carlos S, Nicole R, David S, Alivia S
  • Honorable Mention: Fatima L, Mariah L
