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 “The iWinder” and the “North Pole Watering System.”

As per usual, the public will be able to check out all of the inventions for free on the day of the event. There will also be stage shows and some interesting science displays, including a real human brain, a “Make Your Own Slime” station, water rockets and Tesla Coil “lightning.”
