Student inventors will showcase their ‘Astounding Inventions’ on Jan. 24

Some innovative student inventions will be featured later this month at the 28th annual Astounding Inventions contest.


Presented by Greenberg Traurig LLP and the Irvine Valley College Foundation, the event will take place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 24, in Irvine Valley College’s Hart Gymnasium. (Click to enlarge the flier to the right.)

Astounding Inventions is a unique fair established to promote student interest in math and science. Each year, Irvine and Tustin students in kindergarten through the eighth grade submit their own original inventions, which are judged and displayed. Last year’s award-winning entries included the “Baby Camera Flash” and the “Dolphin Wind Dynamics.”

The public will be able to check out this year’s submissions for free on the day of the event, and we encourage you to come take a look. There will also be stage shows and some interesting science displays, including robots, a “Make Your Own Slime” station, water rockets and a sea-life petting pool from the Aquarium of the Pacific.
