The California Invention Convention is being held virtually this year.
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 2020,in response to health concerns, the California Invention Convention is being held virtually. Students must register on this site in order to participate.
As part of the registration system, each inventor / team must submit 4-6 minute video created according to guidelines outlined in Creating Your Video. The video will be reviewed by the judges and MUST be submitted by April 10th.
Judges will revieiw and score assigned videos between April 14th-April 23rd. Final results will be posted on our website www.cainventionconvention.org by April 28.

IF YOU HAVE ALREADY REGISTERED THIS YEAR AS A TEACHER, YOU HAVE TO MAKE A SMALL ADJUSTMENT WHEN REGISTERING AS A JUDGE. WHEN YOU ENTER YOUR NAME AND EMAIL, IT HAS TO BE DIFFERENT THAN YOUR FIRST REGISTRATION. So if you registered as Judy Smith email@example.com – you could register with a different email account, or change your first name to Judith or even add a digit such as Judy1 Smith. The system goes into a loop if you try to register with the same name and email.
Volunteers: As our event will be virtual, we will not be needing your help this year. Thank you for thinking of us and we will see you in 2021!!
