What does it look like when a couple hundred middle school students take over our creative work space for a day full of inventing fun?
We found out exactly what that looked like last Friday, April 4th, when Inventionland hosted the 2014 WQED Design Lives Here Invention Convention!
Students in grade sixth through eighth from Franklin Regional Middle School, Seneca Valley School District’s Haine Middle School and Bethel Park School District’s Independence Middle School unleashed their creative sides during the day-long inventing extravaganza.
As usual, this year’s Invention Convention helped to support STEM education, or the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
The day included a few inventing challenges, but highlighted one in particular, where students teamed up to pitch new invention ideas to our very own team of Inventionland Creationeers.
Here’s just a peek at this year’s WQED Invention Convention:
