Bishop starts the sixth grade in the fall.
There is no such thing as being “too young” when it comes to changing the world.
A young inventor developed a cooling device that will prevent a newborn from dying in heated cars. In June 2016, CNN reported that the rate of heated car deaths tripled between 2015 and 2016, which is 24-total deceased.
Once 10-year-old Bishop Curry learned about a 6-month-old baby who suffocated and died from an overheated car with no air, he went straight to work to build The Oasis, according to the HuffPost.
“It kind of came in my head,” said Curry in a HuffPost interview.
The device reacts to surging temperatures by producing a cooling air effect, and it notifies the parents and law enforcement when the child is in danger.
As of now, Curry built a 3-D clay model and his father, Bishop Curry IV, started the GoFundMe campaign back in January, according to the HuffPost. Lawyers then suggested that the Curry family focus on securing funds to cover manufactering, prototyping, and patenting fees.
“I got lots of help from my parents,” said Curry in a HuffPost interview.
Last Monday, the young inventor exceeded his goal from the GoFundMe campaign and raised over $23,000. So family and friends believe that Curry can grow this project to exponential heights.
