1: Excellent collection of bright innovative ideas by children. As Einstein put it, IDEAS RURE THE WORLD. Creativity, innovation and invention are the pillars of society. I find the Science exhibits put up at Science Fairs are of top order in some cases. The IQ of present generation is quite high. We have to nurture the innovative spirit in children so that it blossoms for major breakthroughs.
