March 8 is International Women’s Day. Congratulations to all women! Amongst many things, women are very inventive and and creative. Here are a few women inventors.
Women inventors? You bet! Ever Since the earliest times women invented things that helped people. These are just a handful. My favourite is the flat bottom paper bag. It sure made shopping easier!
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? Well, that is what people did for centuries until Fannie Farmer came along. Thank goodness for inventions by women.
My “kids” are adults now. When they were young, I’m sure they would have loved playing the Early Reader Treasure Hunt App by uKloo. I discovered the app the other day when I saw my friend’s children playing it on her smart phone. The FREE app is the digital version of the very successful multi-award winning Early Reader Treasure Hunt Game for young children.
A couple of years ago I attended my niece’s graduation ceremony. She had just completed an undergraduate degree in mechanical engineering. I sat in the balcony and looked down at the long line of students waiting to go up on the stage to get their diplomas. My niece was one of a handful of women in the line up. Where were the rest?
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!
