Seton LaSalle will be hosting a larger Invention Convention for over 200 Catholic grade school students in our area. The students will present over 160 projects. Schools included are St. Louise, Saint Anne School, St. Thomas More School, Saint Elizabeth School and Madonna Catholic School. The event will help students become inventors and entrepreneurs, while instilling problem-solving skills, encouraging critical thinking, and establishing creativity skills for life.
"We could not be more excited to welcome our neighboring elementary schools to our Invention Convention," said Michael Gianoutsos, Director of Innovation at Seton LaSalle. "This collaborative effort will challenge educators and students alike, while allowing us a special opportunity to support our school community."
