Roland-Story elementary students enter projects for Invent Iowa Convention
Three 4th grade students from Roland-Story Elementary entered Invent Iowa projects through the Belin-Blank Center recently in order to be considered for the “Invent Iowa” State Invention Convention. As one of the state’s original Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) programs, Invent Iowa is a comprehensive, statewide program developed to support educators in promoting the invention process as part of their regular curriculum. Invent Iowa was initiated in 1987 through the support of state political, business, and educational leaders in response to the future of rapidly expanding technology. Since 1999, the Invent Iowa program has been a part of the Belin-Blank Center. Lucas Wuebker, Jaclyn Gessner and Claire Jonas were all invited to participate in the “Invent Iowa” State Invention Convention on May 7, 2016. The convention will be held at the University of Iowa Memorial Union in Iowa City.
