This year, NSCD offered third, fourth and fifth grade students the opportunity to participate in the Chicago Student Invention Convention (CSIC) curriculum as part of the school’s after-school enrichment program. CSIC offers a free, flexible curriculum focused on critical thinking, creativity and innovation. It is supported by lesson plans, and culminates in a final competition of student built prototypes.

At the conclusion of the enrichment program, a number of NSCD students created and presented pitch videos at the annual Chicago competition on May 20, 2022. 

Receiving recognition at the awards ceremony were: 

  • Cameron ’’31 won two awards - 1st place in the K-third grade category; Molex Technology & Transformation Award that includes a meeting with the Molex team
  • Leena ’31 - 2nd place in K-third grade category
  • Grady ’30 and Arjun ’30 - received the Founder's Award, aimed on honoring students trying to make an impact on others' lives and awarded by CSIC founder Anneliese Gegenheimer
