 The ESU 10 “Shark Tank” Invention Convention
Invention Convention (Grades 1-8) provides a forum for schools across the region to showcase their students’ best inventions while providing the students with an opportunity to find out about real inventions and fantasy inventions, real inventors, and the inventive process.  Students will use both their creative and critical thinking skills to develop an invention.

In the “Shark Tank” budding entrepreneurs are going to jump into the tank with the Sharks (aka judges) and present their inventions for a chance to bring their dreams to fruition.  The entrepreneurs try to convince the Sharks they can turn their dreams into a reality and their ideas into lucrative empires.
