Pupils are confident that humanity really need their inventions. For example, the 11-th grade student of the Information technology Lyceum of the Alexandria City Coucil, Kirovograd Region, Daniil CHEREVASHKO introduced a portable device to clear any kind of water – rain, river, etc. You can take this device on camping trips and always have on hand to clean drinking water. Also young inventors created a device for the breathing treatment, the newest way to come up with photos and videos, developed a method to eliminate the consequences of the offshore oil wells, a device for converting solar energy into thermal one, the really needed computer software and hundreds more useful innovations.

Our charity supports young inventors’ innovations, and we believe that only with love we will build a new world!
