Irvine students will get to showcase their ‘Astounding Inventions’ at upcoming event


Some very cool student inventions will be showcased later this month at the 25th annual Astounding Inventions contest.

The event, presented by Greenberg Traurig LLP and the Irvine Valley College Foundation, is set to take place on Saturday, Jan. 28, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Irvine Valley College’s Hart Gymnasium.

Established to promote student interest in math and science, Astounding Inventions annually features the handmade innovations of Irvine and Tustin students in kindergarten through the eighth grade. Last year’s award-winning entries included the “Nod Off Neutralizer” and the “Solar Power Fridge.”

As per usual, the public will be able to check out all of the inventions for free on the day of the event. Oh, and there will also be stage shows and interesting science displays, including a real human brain, a “Make-A-Quake” earthquake exhibit, water rockets and virtual reality technology.
