Fall Invention Contests Take Center Stage
Highlands Middle School Contest
Middle school students from Highlands School District competed in their school-level invention contest at the end of October. Six groups of students competed against each other and presented their ideas virtually to the judges from Inventionland® Education. After the groups presented, the judges deliberated and chose “The Sugar Depo” presented by Jayson and Adam as the winning invention! “The Sugar Depo” is a device they created that helps deposit sugar into your coffee cup quickly and efficiently.
