On May 1st,  five Pierson School inventors were invited to present their inventions to the Board of Education at its monthly meeting. The five inventors were: James Aronson, Paige Monty, Ollie Snow, Niko Clados and Jacob Jones. These five were asked to present because they won the local Invention Convention at Pierson School in early March. In late March, these innovative thinkers competed at Quinnipiac University in the Regional Invention Convention. Ollie Snow, Niko Clados and Jacob Jones won their judging circles at Quinnipiac and were invited to present their inventions at UCONN on Saturday, April 29th. As if that honor wasn’t enough, both Ollie Snow and Niko Clados were chosen (out of  40 inventors in the entire state of Connecticut) to qualify for the National Invention Convention in Washington DC on June 1-3, 2017. We are so very proud of these 4th and 5th graders and wish Ollie and Niko the best of luck at Nationals!
