This week, Greenview Upper Elementary hosted the 2016 Invention Convention. The event provides cognitively gifted students in the STEP UP program an opportunity to display their creativity and ingenuity by showcasing original inventions. Nearly sixty students in grades 3-6 participated in the project, which required them to utilize the five steps of the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) thinking process to create their invention. The five steps are Ask, Imagine, Plan, Create and Improve. Students created tri-fold presentation boards which described a real-world problem the invention was designed to solve, target sales market and a short advertisement or slogan. Inventions were evaluated by a group of judges. Congratulations STEP UP students for a job well done!
