Students from Piqua Central Intermediate competed at the local Invention Convention this week. They identified a problem, came up with a solution, created a prototype, and decided how to market their product.
Four students advanced to the state Invention Convention in Columbus with their winning ideas.
• Kaylee Eleyet and Marin Funderburg with the Senior Sensory Frame, a frame that stimulates senses to help Alzheimer’s patients with memory.
• Jenna Snyder with Calm Canines, a dog sweater with special features used to calm hyper or nervous dogs.
• Savannah Swanson with CHIRP, an emergency chest hair removal pad for use with defibrillators.
