SCHOOL DISPLAY: Inventive 5th Graders | Community Spirit
Fifth graders in the Ames Community School District will put their inventions on display beginning at 4:15 p.m. on Monday.
They will be showing off their big ideas for solutions ranging from global issues to everyday annoyances at Fellows Elementary School Cafeteria, 1400 McKinley Dr., for parents and friends to view and experts to judge.
Extended Learning Program teacher Beth Johnson said the event is open to all District fifth graders.
“Inventors will be judged on inventiveness, the diagram, the model or prototype, the log and the oral presentation,” Johnson said.
At around 4:50 p.m., inventors and visitors will move to the Gymnasium for a science presentation while the judges continue to deliberate in the display area.
Judges will present awards around 5:45 p.m. in the Gymnasium.
