A couple of months ago Molly submitted an essay to a CHET sponsored contest and won a $500 contribution to a CHET account in her name! There were over 6200 entries and a total of 84 winners from around the state. At the ceremony last night she was asked where her idea came from and she told them that her 5th grade science teacher inspired her. Scot Haney from Channel 3 was the guest speaker and State Treasurer Denise Nappier ran the event.
All students did a fantastic job on their inventions. Congratulations goes out to Sam H, Jessica S, and Jack R for moving on to the CT Invention Convention held at UConn. All three were winners at the state level receiving multiple accolades. Jack R was the Winner of the Convention for the 5th straight year!
Sam H. – His invention is worn as a bracelet for deaf, hard of hearing, and/or sound sleepers that would vibrate to wake or alert the person if the fire alarm sounds
Jessica S. – Her invention allows someone who uses a flash drive, the ability to know what is on the drive, without inserting it into a computer, which could save someone from potentially harming/infecting the computer
Jack R. - His invention created a cover system that would help people keep snow cleared from walkways, mailboxes, and entrances in a portable, easy to use way
