---- — DERRY — What to do if you accidentally burn your toast? You might call upon Jade Norton and her “Toasty Razor” to do the trick.

Jade, a fifth-grader at Derry Village Elementary School joined classmates and students from other grades at the school’s annual Invention Convention.

Students took on projects and came up with some unique ideas.

Sarah King designed the “Save the Snow Leopard” project, which involves using a bulletproof vest to save animals. Another project, a Lego key holder, was the brainchild of third-grader Ayden Laughton.

In addition to showing off their inventions, students also enjoyed a book fair and the annual Young Authors/Illustrators night.
