CHELAN - On Saturday, March 24 Roots Community School students took on Invent Washington in Spokane, and seven out of 15 students entered placed first, second or third for their inventions.  Invent Washington is an organization that promotes the idea that all children have the opportunity to become an inventor and entrepreneur and to let their passions guide them through this journey.  They were joined by 200 other students from schools all over the region including Yakima, Wenatchee, Naches, Sahale, and along the Idaho border. 
Each student was asked to think of a problem, create a solution, keep a log of thought processes, build a prototype for their invention and create a display showcasing their work.  Their dedication paid off as nearly half of our students placed.  A huge congratulations to all of the students for their hard work and a special thank you to Sherry Palmiter of "Just Make Stuff" for making it possible for Roots students to participate in such an inspiring event and a day that will never be forgotten.
