Students solving problems
Close to 300 District 196 fourth and fifth graders got up early Saturday morning to show off the fruits of their inventive minds.
The annual District 196 Inventors' Fair, sponsored by the district's gifted and talented programs, is a chance for students to research and find solutions to problems they notice in their everyday lives.
This year's crop of inventions included creations with names like Tinkle Bell, Gunkless, Porta'cupholder and C.A.S. (Cats Adore Sleeping).
