Student inventors recognized following this year’s Astounding Inventions competition

Dozens of IUSD students have earned honors for all sorts of creative projects in the 24th annual Astounding Inventions contest, which was held this past Saturday at Irvine Valley College’s Hart Gymnasium.

Presented by Greenberg Traurig LLP and the Irvine Valley College Foundation, Astounding Inventions annually showcases clever – and often quite useful – innovations from Irvine and Tustin students in kindergarten through the eighth grade. Some projects have even been featured on “The Tonight Show” after the competition.

This year’s award-winning entries included the “Nod Off Neutralizer” and “Solar Power Fridge.”

We’re told prizes for Division Winners and Outstanding Winners will be available in mid-March. For additional information, please contact Jocelyn Jazwiec at 949-936-5057 or
