Ava's idea was one of 15 selected to be brought to life from over 600 ideas uploaded to NSERC (Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada) and Little Inventors Mission: Protect Our Oceans.
The main mission page is here. The general Little Inventors Page (UK) is here.
Ava's idea, the Cleaner Picker Upper, will be featured in an online exhibition, which will be launched by NSERC in early summer as part of Science Odyssey week and also celebrate the launch of the United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development.
Jean Deslauriers, the skilled maker who is bringing Ava's idea to life, is a retired nuclear physicist from Quebec. The post of Ava’s invention is here (Scrolling down on that page will show you the maker’s blog on how he is building the working model)
Currently, a video is being made by Little Inventors for the Cleaner Picker Upper and we cannot wait to see it!
