Fletcher holds first 'Invention Convention'


Tonawanda News — Other students — like Jackson Mysliwy — created an invention that solved a problem they had encountered during their daily lives. Jackson, a fifth-grader, said he wanted to invent a tool that would prevent his family from stepping in his dog’s poop in the yard. 

So he created natural dog treats that make dog’s waste brightly colored. Jackson and his family came up with the recipe for the treats, made them at home and fed them to their dog, Roxy. Jackson calls his invention “Easy Doo,” because the poop is easy to see and step around. 

“They have carrots and orange food coloring in them, and also peanut butter and flour,” he said. “Roxy liked them and the treats worked.”
