On Saturday, March 4, 2023, 11 students from Prudence Crandall School participated in the Enfield Invention Convention at JFK middle school. These students completed a 13-week after-school program where they learned about the invention process, and created inventions that solved real-world problems. These students developed ideas, researched solutions, and made a prototype of their inventions. They prepared a display and a speech for the judges that explained their invention. This program takes hard work and dedication. Mrs. Bruce and Mrs. James are so proud of these students who made it to the finish line! Congratulations to third graders: Miles Henderson, Janine Almero, and Raelyn Fauteux, Fourth Graders: Charlie Tammaro, June Hamilton, Allison Twarog, and Cameron Mcintosh, Fifth Graders: Asher St. Peter, Evann Rich, Madison Griffin, and Kennedy Raymond.
A special congratulations to Cameron McIntosh and Charlie Tammaro, who were chosen to compete at the regional level. We are excited to see how far they go with their awesome ideas.
