This is the IADS team for the 2018 school year. We are a team of 14 students and 2 mentors. The team shown above consists of students from 10 different school districts whom all go to the Battle Creek Area Math and Science Center. The team started with three members: Joan Welk, Diego Campos, and Ben Brown as a Conrad team and went to the Spirit of Innovation Summit. There the team was awarded the Lemelson-MIT Excite Award which brought them into the finals, and a chance at the Lemelson-MIT InvenTeams Grant which awards $10,000 to the 15 winning teams. From there the team was expanded to 14(the picture above) and the grant application papers were started. Once complete and reviewed our team found out that we had got the Lemelson-MIT InvenTeams Grant.
