Yet another inspiration for young people to enjoy school and focus on learning and improving the world around them. Ann Makosinski from Victoria, Canada, invented a flashlight that needs no batteries. It works simply by holding it. It's world changing!
Makosinski became inspired to invent a light source that didn't need electricity after visiting her mother's home country of the Phillipines. She befriended a girl who said her grades were poor because she could not study at night with no available light. When Makosinski got back home, she got to work.
The video will explain the story, but the end result is a Thermoelectric flashlight that simply works from the heat of your hand--you simply have to hold it.
