The Learning Partnership’s Annual Invention Convention Showcases One-of-a-Kind Student Innovations
On Wednesday, April 22 City of Ottawa – Richcraft Recreation Complex-Kanata will be abuzz with more than recreation, fitness and aquatics. Nearly 400 Grade 8 students will gather to show off their one-of-a-kind creations as part of The Learning Partnership’s 10th annual I3 – Investigate! Invent! Innovate! Invention Convention. From 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., the public is invited to walk around, explore the interactive exhibits and speak with students about their inventions.
The Invention Convention is the culmination of The Learning Partnership’s I3 – Investigate! Invent! Innovate! Program – an integrated science, math and technology curriculum-based program for Grade 7 and 8 students. Students identify problems in their daily lives and invent products or processes to solve those problems based on the concepts they learn in class.
“The ability to innovate, think creatively, communicate and problem solve effectively will be essential skills in tomorrow’s competitive global economy,” says Akela Peoples, President and CEO of The Learning Partnership. “I3 – Investigate! Invent! Innovate! is a fun hands-on approach to fostering these 21st century skills while instilling a passion for science, mathematics and technology.”.
