MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) — Nearly 500 grade school students where on the MTSU Campus Thursday for the 20th annual Invention Convention.
Fourth, fifth and sixth grade students from all across Middle Tennessee participated. The young scientists were asked to invent something in one of two categories: "games" and "make our lives easier."
Justin Saunders of Hendersonville entered a project in the "make our lives easier" category. His invention is an insulated bowl that keeps hot food hot and cold food cold. Justin said it was a particular cold food that inspired his creation.
