On February 11, 2011 schools from the Tampa Bay area celebrated their students who had submitted INVENTIONS of all kinds! Elementary to Middle Schools to High Schools thought of very imaginative devices and innovative ideas to share. University of South Florida sponsored the Young Innovator event with almost 500 entries. The finalists did receive $1,000 each, but it was the incredible atmosphere and experience which is invaluable in creative endeavor. Everyone wins when we all share in innovative ideas! I was asked to showcase my Rolling Dance Chair Project for the final celebration on the last evening of the event. It was really a privilege to be part of this great program! Some of the smaller children were terrific in their sense of wonder as they tried the Dance Chair or watched!
Looking forward to next year!
