Bellerose Elementary School hosts Invention Convention

February 1, 2013 by  

The Bellerose Avenue Elementary School will host the Annual Invention Convention in a new location this year, taking place towards the end of the month.

Applications are currently being accepted for students to participate in the convention. Students are encouraged to think about common daily occurrences and what they could create to improve functions or to solve a problem. Alternatively, perhaps the student has an idea for a new game or toy.

Students can build a model, display board, or drawing for the event, and it does not have to be a working project. An explanation with details about the invention may accompany the display.

They may bring their inventions to the William J. Brosnan School Cafeteria between 3:30 pm and 5:00 pm. Each participant will receive a mock “patent” certificate, along with a ribbon.

The convention is open to students currently enrolled in kindergarten through 5th grade. Enrollment may be done online by February 15 or returned to the child’s teacher by February 8.

Local print companies can assist students with such printing services as poster printing for their projects. Posters can concisely reflect information regarding their inventions in a colorful and eye-catching format, and can be printed in any quantity in full or limited color or in black and white. They can be placed on a stand by the invention to present an impressive display.

The convention is scheduled for February 27 from 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm in the William J. Brosnan School Cafeteria. For more information, visit the Bellerose Elementary School website.
