The ESU 11 Gifted Department hosted their first Future Problem Seminar for the 19-20 school year. 85 students attended from Axtell, Alma, Southern Valley, Elwood, Franklin, and Minden. This problem’s topic was international travel: virtual vs actual. They started off the day with Rachel Jack and Wade Gibson presenting to them on both types of travel, then Bob Hays worked with the beginners to get the components of the process down. They are excited to offer this opportunity to the students and to our future.

The 28th Annual Invention Convention hosted by Educational Service Unit #11 of Holdrege, and organized by Janelle Jack, Gifted Education Coordinator, was held Thursday, March 21, 2019, at the Nebraska Prairie Museum in Holdrege. 146 inventors in Grades 3rd-7th participated. Participating schools included: Alma, Bertrand, Cambridge, Franklin, Holdrege, and Minden.
Students were first judged in their grade level which was divided into groups called “Inventor’s Circles”. There were 15 different Inventor’s Circles which each had a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winner. The judges then picked an overall winner for each Grade Level (3rd – 7th). Each student is given one vote for the Harold Warp Memorial Inventor’s Choice Award.
