Ninth-Graders Become the Next Inventors in Design Competition

Students in Mrs. Wrenn's ninth-grade physical science class competed against each other in the first round of the K-12 InVenture Prize competition on Feb 9.

InVenture challenges students to identify real-world problems and design novel solutions through careful analysis, creativity, and the scientific method. Top teams from each school earn a spot in the K-12 InVenture Prize state finals hosted at Georgia Tech. The winners of the elementary, middle, and high school divisions will be eligible to compete at the annual National Invention Convention & Entrepreneurship Expo.  

Congratulations to our first-place team of Kennedy Kington, Sarah Setzler, and Charlotte Ann Walters, who will compete at the state finals at Georgia Tech in March. Their invention was the Hand Aid, a bandaid that covers the knuckles and palms.

Congratulations also go to our second- and third-place teams:

2nd place - Alisha Start and Madeleine Odom for RetainIt, a retainer with a built-in RFID tracker

3rd Place (tie)

  • Mark Crews, Noah Stone, and Hope Anderson for The Hexagon, a six-compartment laundry sorter that can be used in the washer and dryer
  • Kaelyn Eeles, Courtney Campbell, and Kiersten Lloyd for Angel Wand, a curling wand with a timer and clip at the end to improve safety and reduce the risk of burns
