On November 18th and 19th, teachers from 40 Chicago Public Schools met at Skinner West Elementary for a 1.5 hour workshop. During the orientation Anneliese Gegenheimer, CSIC Director, presented an overview on the invention convention program including program details, timeline, and final event information.
