Details: Our host introduces us to Sean; he's invented a sound meter that's in use in his school's music classes. With some modifications, could he branch out beyond his classmates? We also meet a school entrepreneurs' club; making beauty products and donating the profits turns learning business into fun. While we follow our host as he as invents his own musical instrument.
Big ideas often come in small packages, as we discover in this new series profiling bright young inventors and entrepreneurs from all over the world. From Joel's smart button, which helps kids put their shoes on the right (or left) feet, to Russell's water toys, which he's pitching to New York toy giant FAO Schwartz, innovative ideas are in abundance. As kids will learn, behind every success story is not just a good idea, but a can-do attitude and keen sense of marketing.
