After an intense year of brainstorming, researching and inventing a product to alleviate malnutrition around the world, seven students at Gulliver Preparatory School have won the Best Presentation Award at the Conrad Spirit of Innovation Challenge.
For the students at the Pinecrest school, their task at hand has just begun.
The award for presenting their project at Kennedy Space Center last week was just one achievement in a list of goals.
“Our goal with the actual presentation wasn’t to win the competition,” said Louis Hamilton, 16, one of the students who focused on producing the prototype. “It’s getting people to watch it from all over the world.”
Gulliver is part of Project Lead The Way, one of the nation’s leading providers of K-12 STEM programs. It serves more than 6,500 schools around the country.
