Positive News – Young Visionaries


Shortly before he passed away, Isaac Newton said, ‘I don’t know what I may seem to the world, but as to myself, I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the sea-shore and diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me.’


Whilst his metaphor behooves the modesty of a great mind, young visionaries of today are leaving no stone unturned in seeking out projects well beyond their years.


Two 10-year olds recently won a competition to round up tons of space litter by aiming to recycle the soon-to-be-abandoned Hubble telescope.


A 9-year old girl who develops educational apps for kids was chosen to represent Apple as the youngest app developer at World Wide Developer’s Conference 2016.


Another 8-year old gaming developer wowed Microsoft’s CEO with his goal to mashup technology and environmental concerns through games that try to educate and entertain players all at once.


So, if age is but a number, why not look towards younger minds for a bit of inspiration?
