MCCORDSVILLE, Ind. (WTHR) — Who knew a reality show could inspire classroom projects?
Fourth-graders at McCordsville Elementary School were tasked with presenting their projects in a pitch to their teachers — similar to the popular reality series.
Their inventions include:
- Magnetic checkers
- World's coolest beanbag
- Chapstick holder
- 3-D board game
- Pet room with leash, toys, food and water
Also, Hamilton Southeastern High School juniors Yerin Kwon and Antonelle Johnson were challenged to come up with a "Shark Tank" invention for a school project, so they created food menus for the deaf and those with hearing impairments.
"Shark Tank" shows entrepreneurs making business pitches to a panel of five investors — also known as "sharks." The investors can choose whether or not to invest in the company or product.
