The "Innoventure" high school and middle school invention competition will be held from 9:15 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Corbett Center Ballrooms on the New Mexico State University main campus.

In this year's competition, students have been asked to devise a plan to use renewable energy to provide electricity to those without it in New Mexico. Projects will be judged on various components, including general idea, feasibility and presentation.

About 150 students are expected to participate in the competition and present their prototypes. Their inventions will demonstrate the ability of renewable energy sources such as solar, wind, geothermal, water and biomass.
