“Education is the key to unlock the golden door of freedom.” – George Washington Carver
If you ever talk to children they have infinite ideas and imaginations how they can make this world a better place. Mostly, they are just busy talking about their invisible invention. If at times like this you ask them to draw about what they are thinking you will be amazed to see how they tackle and think about a problem.
A group of children between the ages 5-11 years in Australia and the UK were asked to design inventions which according to them would make this world a better place. The results were not only amazing but also mind-blowing as these children came up with ideas from an ocean organiser to a rubbish eater to a gun sucker.
These drawings which nave been collected for Future Founders are breathtaking and there are a few which are being worked on to make them a reality.
