These kids know how to think on their own.

And with the help of Coaches Becca White and Jessica White at Cognition Interactive Children’s Museum & Makerspace in Mocksville, they took part in the Invention Convention event, with some winning at the next level, qualifying for national competition at the Henry Ford Museum in Michigan.

Cognition’s second grade and eighth grade teams placed first, qualifying for the nationals. The sixth grade team placed third.

“Cognition is making an impact in the community of Davie as well as beyond,” said Grant Lunde, parent.

The goal of Invention Convention at Kaleieum (in Winston-Salem, where the state competition was held) is: “to cultivate the skills, confidence, and culture our students need to successfully engage in problem solving and design thinking. We seek to be strong partners with our families, schools and community members as we prepare future generations for lifelong learning and success.”
