There's an exciting event going on for all the amateur inventors out there.

Marvel Studios announced the 'Iron Man 3: Inventor and Innovator Fair', a challenge for students to channel their inner Tony Stark and develop a unique invention.

Sixth through ninth grade students throughout the United States were asked to create Iron Man-themed projects, including securing cyberspace and engineering tools of scientific discovery.

The participants can also submit projects focusing on eco-friendly car development, limb regeneration, the study of protective armor for injured body parts, aeronautics and more.

Competition finalists will win a trip to California for the finals and also a trip to Disneyland, with their projects displayed at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood.

Iron Man 3 is scheduled for release on May 3rd, starring Robert Downey Jr. Four grand prize winners will accept their award at a special ceremony just before the screening of the movie.
