12-Year-Old Invents Device to Prevent Hot Car Deaths

If you missed the Gr8 at 8 stories this morning, you're missing out on a daily dose of positivity.

Take this story about 12-year-old Lydia Denton who invented a device to help prevent infant hot car deaths. We see those stories time and time again about a child be left in the car. It's absolutely heartbreaking.

The device detects when a child is in the car seat and will alert parents and emergency officials when the car temperature reaches 102 degrees.

The young inventor won the $20K grand prize at the CITGO Fueling Education Student Challenge. Lydia says she'll use to some of that prize money to help develop her invention and get it to the market.

This is super dope and definitely something we need.
