The 7th grade explored the design cycle with an Invention Convention. Each student examined their surroundings to identify a “problem” and developed several avenues to solve it. The students then created a prototype and worked with their peers to identify the aspects of their solution. The students continued to develop their solutions into working prototypes.
Our imaginative students created original solutions to such problems as, stinky shoes, remote hockey practice dummies, key holders, messy dog eating, magnetic hair band, and a crimper for your tape. Our inventors participated in a 7th grade Convention and the top 10 will represent LaSalle II at the CSIC (Chicago Students Invention Convention) citywide competition at Clemente High School on April 1st.
