My third and fourth grade students presented their innovative ideas to our Minnow Tank panel this morning. Such an incredible experience for these young entrepreneurs! They received feedback from Dr. De La Rosa, Mrs. Clements, and Mr. Ward, all leaders in our community. Our inventors left with useful suggestions to move forward with their prototypes and were inspired to keep dreaming!
Third and fourth grade students have the option to participate in the annual Invention Convention. These entrepreneurs create and then share an innovative product with their classmates before moving to the Minnow Tank which is our version of the TV show Shark Tank. As they worked on their inventions, they applied twenty-first century learning including creativity, critical thinking, initiative, and communication skills.
