Innovation in adversity

Adversity is the fuel for Innovation and Creativity

It is often said that curiosity is the best teacher. A curious mind knows no boundaries. It leads to ideas. Ideas that bring many desired changes in the world we live in. Right from the Albert Einstien to Elon Musk to Pablo Picasso, all of them once had minds full of just ideas.

The pandemic has affected the world in unprecedented ways. At the same time, it has also given hope in the shape of innovative ideas. Heroes of Tomorrow 2020 invites school students to showcase their innovations. The innovations could either be an idea waiting to be unveiled or a prototype. You could be an art innovator, a tech innovator, a mathematician, or a social change maker. The contest aims to recognise and nurture young talent to think of ingenious ideas to solve global issues. During this global pandemic, the youth have stepped up and leaned in with creative and innovative ideas to bring joy, solve challenges, help those in need and provide balance to the imbalanced ecosystem.

Heroes of Tomorrow 2020 celebrates these innovations, be it across Technology, Art, Science, Social, Ecological, or just about anything that has germinated as a response to the current adversity we all find ourselves in.

Multicolorheadphone wires

Swetleena Zenith, class 11, Army Public School, Prayagraj, Uttar Pradesh

The cords/wires of the headphone may be of different colors so that untangling them becomes easy. A simple solution to an everyday problem faced by many of us. In free time, Swetleena likes to be with herself, sitting quietly in a corner and contemplating on various things. Since writing acts as a stress buster for her, she sometimes writes long poems. She wants to be a doctor and serve the society. She strongly feels that as one learns from oneself the most in life; his/her inspiration should come from within i.e. one should be self inspired. Her motto: To dream of a person you would like to be is to waste the person you are.

Pen to check concentration

Rudra Prasad Goswami, class 11, DAV Kapildev Public School, Ranchi, Jharkhand

A pen with pressure sensors on the grip to indicate loss of concentration when the grip loosens. Once Rudra was summarizing notes of a Physics chapter, however, somehow he could not concentrate and his attention kept diverting from one topic to another. It is then that he thought about such a pen.

Rudra likes solving Physics numerical and playing chess and cricket. He wants to get into IIT and become an engineer.

A torch with an additional bulb

Md. Alisher, class 12, KSS College, Lakhisarai, Bihar

The idea is to have another bulb below the main bulb of the torch so that light is available near the feet of user and also for people following the user. Once Alisher was returning home with his grandmother at night. As he was using his torch to show his grandmother the way, he could not see a pit himself and fell into it. Idolising Abraham Lincoln, he likes writing stories and wishes to join CBI to rid the country of corruption.

Mobile phone with inbuilt charger

Siddharthanan K, class 11, & Karan Kumar, Class 12, TKV Katapadi, Vellore, Tamil Nadu

A charger pin unit built in a mobile, which can be plugged in directly or through thin extendable wires. Hence, one now does not need to remember carrying the charger and also need not worry about freak accidents cause due to talking while charging. Both Karan and his brother Siddharathan use smart phones for various purposes. During one of their family excursions, they took a lot of photographs using their mobile, which drained the battery quickly. As they had forgotten their charger, they could not charge the mobile and missed many opportunities of beautiful shots. This made them think and come up with this idea. The duo likes to play carom and chess, and want to become businessmen

Keeping students fresh while reading

Mahirah Akhter and MorifatWani, class 10, Maryam Memorial Institute, Kupwara, Jammu & Kashmir

An ink or a paper (for books), which emits certain radiations keeping reader fresh and fatigue free. Seeing her elder brother getting tired after long studying hours, Mahira thought of having such a book. She wants to become a teacher as she believes that a good teacher can reform the society. Morifat has been a brilliant student since childhood and conceived this idea while studying Rutherford’s model of atoms. She has been conducting the morning assembly of her school for many years and campaigning for environment cleanliness. She wants to become a doctor and serve the people of her village.
