Chicago Invention Convention Awards
Chicago Invention Convention Awards

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
