(Savannah schools) St. Andrew’s School wins first place at Inventure Competition

St Andrew's School Savannah Congratulations to St. Andrew’s School Middle School students for winning top honors at Georgia Tech’s annual InVenture Prize competition.

The winning design tech team is made up Jacob Chu ’25, Holden Haenel ’25, and Liam Luther ’25. These young inventors will now travel to the Georgia Tech campus in Atlanta, presenting their BabyAlertt invention at the state level of competition on March 11.

Under the guidance of instructor Maria Dixon, these students have been working for several months to create an alert for parents who may accidentally leave a baby in a hot car. The device lays on top of a child’s car seat and includes a pressure sensor that is activated when the car reaches dangerous temperatures.

InVenture challenges students to identify real-world problems and design novel solutions through careful analysis, creativity, and the scientific method. The goal is to broaden participation in STEM by bringing authentic invention and entrepreneurship experiences to K-12 teachers and students.
