Intermediate Invention Convention: St. John, St. Luke, St. Francis grade 7/8 students 10:00-2:00. The convention is the culmination of the Investigate! Invent! Innovate! Program. “

This is a free experiential learning program that empowers Grade 7 and 8 students to identify a real-life problem and invent a solution in the classroom using science, technology, engineering, arts and math. With a comprehensive suite of lesson plans and teacher resources, this program cultivates creativity, critical thinking, collaboration, communication and problem-solving skills among students. Through the program, students develop an entrepreneurial mindset by researching a problem, building a prototype, and developing a business plan and marketing strategies to promote their invention. Investigate! Invent! Innovate! aligns with provincial curriculum and provides opportunities for cross-curricular learning     

The program culminates in an Invention Convention where students showcase their inventions to the public”.
