Cinnaminson students took first place in three of the four divisions in the regional Invention Convention at the EcoComplex in Bordentown on May 2. 

The event, sponsored by Student Inventions Through Education (SITE), hosted local winners in grades K-8.

Local winners included:

* Gabrielle Sickler’s “No Slip Head Grip,” took first place in the K-2 Division;

* Gina Hite’s invention, “The Bright Box” was awarded first place in the Grades 3-4 Division; and

* Garrett Goebel took first place for his “Extend-a-Switch” in the Grades 5-6 Division.

 

This was Cinnaminson’s 29th annual Invention Convention, held under the direction of Elaine Mendelow, a retired teacher who conceived The Project Challenge program.

The program is for New Albany Elementary School, Eleanor Rush Intermediate School and Cinnaminson Middle School students in grades 2-8.  

The district’s inventors look forward to entering their next ideas and prototypes in next year’s Invention Convention to be held in March, 2015.
