Have you heard the saying “If you can’t find it build it”? Well, that’s what 5th grader Maddie Bradshaw of Texas, United States did when she couldn’t find fun magnets for her school locker.
What if you needed an important medical check-up, but you couldn’t get to a doctor? Well, American student Catherine Wong has invented a heart test device — and the only thing you need to take it is an ordinary cell phone!
Do you have a favourite recipe? I bet you do. Maybe one for chocolate chip cookies! Imagine not having a recipe to guide you. What would you do? Just throw things together and then hope for the best?
