Westlake fair showcases young inventors
Here’s your chance to see just how creative our youth of today can be when it comes to solving problems and inventing solutions to them.
The Westlake City School District will holds its Invention Convention Fair at Dover Intermediate School on March 21 from 8 a.m. to noon. Invention Convention is a process of solving a problem, developing the invention idea to solve the problem, and designing a prototype of the solution.
More than 100 K-8 student inventors will be judged at the district fair, with the top inventions moving on to the Northeast Regional Invention Convention Fair at Cleveland State University on May 2. Come on out and see the inventions!
Offered free to participating schools, The Invention Convention inspires K-8 students to create and problem solve while developing their inventions. Over 1 million Ohio kids have participated since 1993, creating useful, sometimes crazy, and always interesting inventions.
At the Northeast Regional Invention Convention Fair students will compete for the $2,500 grand prize and other grade category prizes. The Invention Convention also sponsors a Teacher of Excellence award for a deserving teacher at the regional fair. The winning teacher receives a technology package and other prizes for their classroom.
