Two Ashland Christian School students, Leo and Steve Szijarto, decided a tracking app might help identify whoâ€™s at risk for COVID-19. Along with the Szijarto brothers, second-grader Michael Bell, created the Air-Pollution Stopper (prototype filter that sucks in oil, dust and dirt to help cities clean the air). So proud of all of you!

Mrs. Natalie Bell's second graders read about George Washington Carver where he came up with 300 new uses for peanuts! As scientists, students thought about what they could invent that would be considered a "new use" for an invention. They were able to utilize makerspace and reusable materials, then invented things like a bed becoming a shelf, robot shoe (built in massager), and peanut machine to make peanuts as well as a salt spreader.
