John Small Elementary holds invention convention

WISE GUYS: Brilliant inventions graced the halls of John Small Elementary School last month as fourth and fifth graders in the school’s Wise Guys program presented projects on various inventions. While fourth graders invented new items for the event, fifth graders prepared projects on items that have special significance in their lives. Fifth graders were asked to produce a report on the history of their chosen invention, a timeline of its creation and a personal essay on the personal impact of item. Here, fourth grader Allison Harris displays her ‘Bird Brella,’ a device designed to allow birds to feed in dry conditions during rain storms.
