Welcome to the California Invention Convention!!
The California Invention Convention event is an annual celebration of K-12 inventors and entrepreneurs from across California. The event provides a vehicle for youth inventors and entrepreneurs from grades K-12 to display their critical thinking skills through inventing, innovating, and entrepreneurial activities.
Each year, student “winners” from classroom competitions around California are invited to attend the state California Invention Convention.
In 2019, the California Invention Convention is being held on Saturday, April 13th at Maxim Integrated, 160 Rio Robles, San Jose. Students must register on this site in order to participate.
Students check in with their inventions at Maxim Integrated on April 13th from 8:00am to 9:30am. Early check-in is available on Friday, April 12th from 4:00pm to 6:00pm. The Convention includes judging of the inventions, a public viewing hour, and an awards ceremony which will conclude at 3:30pm.
