Three teams of third graders from Slingerlands Elementary School will travel to RPI on December 8 to compete against teams from other area schools in a Shark Tank-like competition where they will pitch product inventions developed over the last six weeks. The competition, known as the Cool Kid IP Challenge powered by AT&T, was conceived by locally-owned CreositySpace, a company seeking to connect elementary students and their teachers to STEM learning by bringing entrepreneurs and innovators into the classroom. The students, who are all in Mrs. Paradis’ class, will compete against teams from Albany, Troy and Schodack at RPI.
