February 20th Mid-Grant Review

Last week's review ran smoothly. Overall, 21 guests attended, 3 of whom were representatives from PP&L (Pennsylvania Power and Light). All Paupack InvenTeams students presented their bit of the PowerPoint to the attending audience and afterwards split into their individual committees to answer questions and talk with the public. Towards the end of the night, the team met with a reporter from the local newspaper, the News Eagle, to do an interview during which questions were answered regarding the work we have done and the contributors we have met with.
