     We have yet another inventor in the house- Courtney! At the girl's middle school, a requirement of all 6th graders is to participate in the Invention Convention and either create a game or an invention that makes life easier.

     Courtney put a lot of thought into what she wanted to invent. There were many days of talking, brainstorming, and even a few ideas that didn't work out. In the end, she created :

The Fantabulous Accessory Holder!!!

 Courtney created a "person" to hold all of your hair accessories as well as your necklaces. I didn't take pictures from all angles, but this holds clips, bobby pins, ribbons, headbands, and ponytail holders. Check out the neck area to see how it's displayed to hold her necklaces.

 Courtney designed and created this entire invention herself. One of the stipulations of this assignment, is that the cost of the materials can not exceed $15. Courtney came under that goal by .51 cents!
 All of the 6th graders are presenting their projects this week and after that, each science teacher selects 10 from their classes (20 chosen in all) to head to the Invention Convention at MTSU where hundreds of from all over the mid-state area compete against each other. We aren't sure if Courtney will be selected to head to MTSU, but she is a winner in our books!!! Great Job Courtney!!!
