Four Inventors

By Mrs. Moran
Congratulations to four students who won awards and $100. savings bonds at the CT Invention Convetion May 1st: Cassidy for her Babysitting Belt, Mansoor for his Sleepie Pillow, Sarah for her Knife Cushion, and Felicia for her Water Cuby.
The students needed to design an invention that solved a problem in an original way. They were judged on five criteria: originality, attention to detail, purpose, adherence to guidelines, and presentation.
The Connecticut Invention Convention takes place each year at UConn’s Gampel Pavilion. This year a record number of student inventors participated from across the state.
