What Are Some Inventions Created by Kids?

Some inventions created by kids include the trampoline and the popsicle. The idea of the trampoline was the brain child of a 16 year-old, while an 11 year-old was the first to think of the popsicle.

In 1930, 16-year-old George Nissen watched as a trapeze artist bounced on the net under the high wire and an idea struck. This young man created the first trampoline in his parents garage with a metal frame and tightly stretched canvas.

In 1905, Frank Epperson was 11 years old when he mixed a glass of water and powder on the front porch and left the wooden stir stick in the cup. Overnight, the temperature dropped, and the mixture froze, creating the first popsicle.
