Davenport Students Win at Invent Iowa!

Three Davenport students, Calvin Moulton of Madison and Zeke Wynsma and Calvin Jantzi, both of Eisenhower made it through three rounds of competition to get to the state finals in Invent Iowa.  Parent leaders and the Talented And Gifted teacher from the two schools, Lorie Brock, met with students after school to research, design and execute the two projects. Calvin and Zeke’s project won at the state level earning the boys a $500 scholarship to University of Iowa or Iowa State engineering department. Their project is a sealed toilet seat to keep bacteria from spreading. Calvin Jantzi invented “The One Trip”-a device that connects to garbage cans that holds recycling bins. Congratulations, young inventors
