Here’s a great story about an 11-year-old who solved a problem: she invented a spill-proof cup for her grandfather, who has Parkinson’s disease. Now she’s selling her invention on Kickstarter. WTG Lily!
BTW, did you note her dad’s comment? He said, “…one of the reasons I have so much passion for this project is that Lily wasn’t really recognized by her school. If it wasn’t for crowdfunding, she’d still be asking me, ‘What am I good at?'” As I’ve said so many times, schools do not encourage creativity. Sometimes they even discourage it. Kudos to Lily’s dad for helping her with her idea.
