Invention Convention and Minnow Tank
Fourth graders were invited to participate in our first annual Invention Convention. They went through the invention process and designed a prototype that they shared with their classmates and teachers. The following week, fifteen entrepreneurs participated in our version of the TV show Shark Tank which we called Minnow Tank. Many thanks to our panel, Dr. De La Rosa, Mrs. Kurtz, and Mr. Lamkin, for sharing their time and expertise with these students. The panel shared specific ideas with each group about how their products could be improved, as well as marketing strategies, and suggestions for pricing and packaging. I know our students left inspired!
