Flat Rock Middle inventors appear on cooking show

After seeing some of the inventions students from Flat Rock Middle School showcased at the Georgia Tech InVenture Challenge, representatives of Kids-R-Chefs, an online talk and cooking show for kids, invited the students to be in an episode. Flat Rock Middle’s STEM program (science, technology, engineering and math) founder and math teacher, Dr. Monica Reckley, and 10 eighth-grade students appeared on the show taped April 15. Students on the show were Jana Davis, Sydnni-Jade Adams, Kortney Avery, Julian Harris, Isom Hewitt, Joelle Scott, Sydney Thompson, Kaelyn Fraier, Daniela Lopez and Arianna Watson. They prepared three types of pizzas while talking about the inventions they took to the Georgia Tech competition.Those included a bulletproof vest designed specifically for female police officers, a wireless vital-signs monitoring device for elderly patients that alerts caregivers to abnormal readings, a dental floss guard to make flossing teeth easier, and an extension cord and power outlet combination that reduces the number of electrical outlets needed in a home.
