Annual Inventions And Design Contest Underway

Four hundred students from second grade up have brought their ideas to this year's Invention and Design contest at Letourneau university.

There are ways to help keep your credit cards secure and one that combines breath freshening strips with medication.

One fourth grader used his own personal experience with his eyeglasses to invent the Glassiper. "Well this is going to be facing your glasses and hook up these onto the glasses right here and then all you do is move this back and forth," says inventor Gino Chacon.

Gino says his invention will help him and others keep water off their eye glasses in the rain. All of the inventions will be judged Tuesday and the winners announced Thursday.
