Congratulations to Draper Middle School students Jenna Lester, Tianna Harris, Alyssa Hamblet, Zachary Esposito, Halina King and Ashley Perretta, who were chosen as semi-finalists in the Invention Convention 2015 student invention program.
Invention Convention is an annual regional and statewide invention competition for students from grades K through 8. In collaboration with the museum of innovation and science (miSci) and GE Volunteers, this contest is organized and run by volunteer scientists, engineers, patent attorneys, agents and others.
The students were among 100 semifinalists honored at a May reception at miSci.
Now in its 18th year, Invention Convention has engaged more than 14,000 students from this region in creative problem solving since the program began in 1998.
