The annual Innovate to Grow expo included a series of events around the UC Merced campus Friday, such as demonstrations of inventions, blue-ribbon panels and cash prizes. Science, technology, engineering and math are the focus of the expo. During the competitions, student teams present the results of their projects and demonstrate their innovations to a jury of industry and community representatives. The students use posters, videos and presentations to try to convince officials that their idea is the next big thing.
