Invention Convention

Wednesday evening Mr. Morgan and I went to Claire's school for her SAIL class's Invention Convention. Basically, her invention is a cover for a toaster oven that prevents a user from getting burned from the outside, hot-to-the-touch spots. Claire spent the last three months working on this invention, and she was so excited to be finished--we were too! I was proud of her for working so hard, though she was disappointed to not win any of the awards.

Part of her assignment was to give her invention a clever name: Claire called her invention a Cool, Toaster Oven. She explained to me, "It's called 'cool' because people will think it's really neat, and 'cool' because it'll keep the hot toaster oven cool on the outside."
