Fifth Grader Creates Device To Prevent Hot Car Fatalities

School is out for the summer for ten-year-old Bishop Curry of McKinney, Texas and he’ll be spending a lot of it developing his idea to help prevent deaths related to hot cars. He calls his design, “oasis” and with the help of a GoFundMe campaign, Curry has already raised over $20,000 to help develop the device. The concept is shaped like a small box with ducts in a honeycomb pattern. Once it gets too hot, a sensor would tell the device to start blowing the cool air. Then, an antenna would alert local authorities and parents to come to a child’s aid. He intends for it to be placed on the backseat headrests of the driver and passenger or to be placed on a car seat. He currently has a 3D-model of his concept design. He described his motivations from the death of baby, from hot car incident down the street from where he lives….. Ed
