TVs controlled by voice and dream recorders were some of the fantastic creations at a students' invention contest at the Intrepid Sea-Air-Space Museum.

The "Wouldn't It Be Cool If...?" contest allowed students met with mentors to think of ideas that could change their world.

Tablet computers in school desks, waterproof microchips and high-tech glasses were all dreamed up.

"Since seeing these scientists and how things affected their lives and why they chose what type of engineer and everything they wanted to be, it sort of affected me," said student Egypt Thom.

The "Wouldn't It Be Cool If...?" contest is part of Time Warner Cable's Connect A Million Minds campaign to promote science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) in schools.

The deadline for the competition is March 28.
