Students Win KC Invention Convention

CAPS Innovate students Tyler Lively and Jackson Bruechner placed 1st in the high school division and were selected Best of Show in the 2022 KC Invention Convention. Their submission is called MetaCar. The aim is to relocate the car dealership into the metaverse providing real 3D lidar scans of car dealership lots translated to be viewed with a mobile or VR device. The students received a cash award and are invited to compete in the national competition at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, MI. This marks the 2nd consecutive year that a CAPS team has won the high school division and the overall competition. Congratulations to Tyler and Jackson!
