The Invention Convention at Shirley Lanham Elemetary School
The second grade students really enjoyed using their imagination building their inventions. The students were required to get an idea of a product they could improve. After getting as idea they were to name and build a model of their invention. This was followed with a test to see if it worked.
Then they wrote a report of what material they used and the process of making their invention. Finally, the students presented their inventions to their peers explaining the purpose of the invention, followed with a demonstration.
I really enjoyed listening and watching what they invented. Some of the inventions were a Control Holder that had compartments to hold remote controls, Music Trash Bot that played music, Poodle Bot that looked like a large poodle on wheels and was a vacuum cleaner, Flashing Generator that you can use when the electrical power goes out, Ballcano game that shoots out balls that you try to catch, and Micro Noid a robot that was programed to do 4 different functions. All of the student’s inventions were really fun to watch!
