A rock climbing device that could stop someone from plummeting off the side of a cliff. A blanket that blocks life-draining radiation. A dog jacket to shield pooches from nerve-racking fireworks.

The contest, held by Bend Research, challenges High Desert students to create an invention that would combat their greatest fears.
