Your help is needed to support funding for Bishop’s life-saving invention! We hope to begin production as soon as possible but legal and manufacturing fees are pricey.
Fifth grader Bishop Curry Jr. is fascinated with making things. From creating a home-made catapult and ping pong ball cannon to thinking of ways to melt ice and snow on roads without using salt.
His latest idea is getting more attention. It is a car seat that can help prevent hot car deaths in children.
“I made a clay prototype, and the invention’s name is Oasis,” Curry said.
Saddened by a hot car death in his town, Bishop aspires to build a car seat or car seat cover that will detect when parents leave a child inside a hot vehicle and alert them to the child’s situation. The car seat will also come with the technology to help cool down the child while he or she waits for rescue. Bishop has over $3,000 of the $20,000 he is seeking on GoFundMe.
