Astounding Inventions

For many years IUSD students have participated in an exciting school competition called “ASTOUNDING INVENTIONS.”  This is a program for K-5th graders that encourages the kids to look creatively at their everyday life and try to find a solution to a problem they see around them and invent something.

This year students can submit their inventions individually or in a group of two students from the same grade. They will need to submit a model of their invention with the inventor’s notebook, inventor’s display board or a video pitch by December 18, 2018 at the library.

If your child is interested in participating, please fill out the interest form at https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSclkf-Pi3-uGtrv-i0WV3rDqM6anHiMZLTsnI8PWM-lp63ZYA/viewform or send an email with your child’s name and grade to panizebrahimi@gmail.com by November 11, 2018.

All inventions will be displayed at the library and every participant will receive a certificate. The top inventions from the school will be chosen by teachers to advance to the district level competition at the Irvine Valley College, were the students can win up to $50 monetary awards.
