EurekaFest Presentation!

Hi guys! It's been a few weeks since the InvenTeam convened and you've heard from us, but hopefully you've been enjoying your July. Can you believe it's already been over a month since EurekaFest?

Here is a link to a video of our InvenTeam's presentation at EurekaFest:

Today we are tying up some loose ends by handling some PR details and cleaning up. We are writing out thank-you letters to all of the contributors to our process, unpacking our travel trailer, and also meeting with Katie Collins from our local paper, The News Eagle, to allow her to give a final report of our experience.
Now comes the next phase of our invention process independent of the InvenTeams program. We have yet to assemble the remainder of our custom circuit boards, apply for a patent for our invention, and we may also make improvements to the structure of the device. All of that will come in later months towards the beginning of the 2014-2015 school year.
For now, have a great summer, all!

One week ago, the InvenTeam surprised our leader Mr. Shultz at his house with a party to thank him for all of the things he has done for our team. We are thankful to him for presenting us with the opportunity to participate in the InvenTeams program, for always keeping us on task, and for everything else he does for the students of the WAHS Gifted program as a whole. Because Mr. Shultz is an avid fisherman, the entire team pitched in to buy Mr. Shultz a beautiful personalized fishing reel.
