Lincoln students move on in Invention League competition

Posted: 5/17/2017 Categories: HOMEPAGE Headlines, Press Releases, Lincoln Elementary News
Lincoln Elementary fourth grade students Cole Farbizo and Joseph Yost will be taking their ‘Canebrella’ invention on the road! The pair has qualified for the National Invention Convention and Entrepreneurship Expo (NICEE,) held in Washington, D.C. June 1-4. This is the second National Invention Convention Competition under the new “STEMIE” Coalition.

Students participating in NICEE will spend time at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office HQ to celebrate the nation’s best young inventors and entrepreneurs — winners of competitions from across the nation. This far-reaching forum is the marquee event of The STEMIE Coalition. The invitation-only event provides a live, in-person opportunity for youth inventors and entrepreneurs in grades 4-12 to display their critical thinking skills through inventing, innovating, and entrepreneurial activities.

“We are very proud and excited for these kids!” said Jim Micciulla, principal, Lincoln Elementary.

In order to travel to Washington, D.C., Cole and Joseph are raising funds online. You can donate to them via EdBacker until they depart!
