Shark Tank for kids in Searcy

SEARCY, Ark. (KTHV) - Hayden Balgavy and Sarah Fortner served as Shark Tank panel judges in Searcy Wednesday.

At Westside Elementary, Mrs. Blansett’s 1st graders exhibited inventions, apps and robots to try to win a panel of “shark investors.”

This project went hand-in-hand with learning about past inventors like Edison and Franklin.

Things like “Rosa the robot” who cleans your room for you, the kindness app for ways to respond to bullies, even an app for weather, that’s only for kids, were among the prototypes presented.
