    Davenport West was recently named as a finalist for the Lemelson-MIT InvenTeam grant. Jason Franzenburg was awarded the Lemelson-MIT Excite Teacher honor. Mr. John Brosius will be traveling on behalf of the Davenport West team to Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) for EurekaFest this summer for professional development. This past year’s winners will present their inventions at EurekaFest. Franzenburg was able to attend EurekaFest 2015, and the Davenport West team went on to invent a solution to vehicular heatstroke. Franzanburg said, “It is a truly rewarding experience and you get to meet amazing teachers from all over the country.” This year Davenport West’s INSPIRE team will be working on clean water solutions for a village in Kenya.
