Invention Convention gives kids chance to be innovative
Students at Apollo-Ridge Elementary School participated recently in an Invention Convention. Fifth-graders were challenged to come up with an original invention, with a working model.
Twins Justin, left, and Jonathon Coleman demonstrated their remote-control trucks.
One will spread salt on your driveway; the other will squeegee water with a blade mounted to the front, all from the comfort of your home.
