Fourth-graders Adam Grimes and Nicole McKie explain their original inventions to students during the OLS Invention Convention.

Some fourth-grade students at Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic School (OLS) can now call themselves inventors! During their final month of school in May, the students created original inventions and displayed them at their own Invention Convention in the OLS Parish Hall. The fun event was a major part of their science curriculum. As a part of a month-long project, the fourth-graders had to think of an original idea or develop a new method of doing something. The students then worked through a systematic process to make their invention a reality. The class project was structured to help the students learn about inventors and develop their own product. It also taught them how to create their own concept through research and development and how to design a blueprint as well as create a convincing advertisement for their new device. A summary report and writing a tribute letter to another inventor were also a part of the assignment which culminated with the Invention Convention. †
