The Andover third graders held their annual Invention Convention on March 15. The Invention Convention was the culminating activity of a multidisciplinary unit. The students applied skills from math, reading, and writing to develop background knowledge, create inventions, and present them.
The third graders did an amazing job! There were two winners that went on to represent Andover at a regional convention. They were Colin Murphy and Camden Allenby.
Thank you to the judges and the families of third graders for their support on this collaborative project.
