Turn Your Idea Into An Invention

The common thread that ties us to every other person in the world is that . . . we all have pet peeves. Those little things that either happen, or that people do out of habit, can drive us off the deep end. Some people take their pet peeve and bury it, roll their eyes at it, or ignore it. Others use their creativity to do something about it.

Anthony Roberts and William Cortez-Vega, students of Southern Poly Tech State University, decided that they no longer wanted “milk crusties” in their morning cereal. From there, they worked together to create a new invention to change breakfast for themselves and those who also suffer from the same annoyance.

Watch the journey from idea to invention below.




What is the one pet peeve you wish you could do something about? Why can’t you? Your creativity can get as wild as you allow it. Grab someone with the similar issue and work together to find a solution.

It may seem simple, maybe even silly, but The Milk Capper has helped many people who thought they would have to suffer through milk crusties for the rest of their mornings.

Imagine what finding the solution for your pet peeve could do for the other people in your life. Every difference you make counts, no matter how small it is.

You can see more about this invention at http://milkcapper.com/MilkCapper/MilkCapper.html

Find A Place To STEM Out!

Sometimes we need to be around like-minded people in order to appreciate our own intelligence. Sometimes we strive for the feeling of seeing other people enjoy what we do, know what we do, and want to learn more about what we do. Sometimes it’s valuable for our youth to see everyone around them as ambitious individuals.

Seminars such as the one in the below video work as a tool of empowerment for our youth.  STEM programs (science, technology, engineering, and math) are forever growing in high schools and colleges and it’s important to keep that interest alive!




Although the summer is just about over and enrollment has already started, this seminars and weekend getaways happen all year round. This video was filmed in December at Carver College of Medicine.

Take a look around your local neighborhood! Or take a trip with your children! Explore what the world has to offer for your child’s future. It’s never too late to introduce the youth of tomorrow to a program that could benefit them today.

Why Tech Entrepreneurs Should Attend College

Attending college is more than acquiring a degree in a particular field of study. It’s about becoming a part of a community so that you can begin to have new experiences, make partnerships, and learn from the people around you.
 
In the video below Nichole Pinkard, professor of computing and digital media at DePaul University, states that she is impressed that the digital software classes are in the same building as photography. 


Why is that important?


When you enter the world of computer programming, you begin to work on projects to aid or entertain people in their daily lives. There is nothing new under the sun. Many thoughts and ideas have been imagined, but not all have been executed. Even the ones that have been executed could always be improved by looking at them with a different perspective.

That’s what the college experience does for your mind. The college experience opens up a new world of inspiration. Many of us seek inspiration to finish or begin a project. On a college campus, around every corner, there is a new person with a new need to aid or a new experience to share.

College is about learning. Not just from your books, not just from your professors, but also from every other student who has a different outlook on life from your own. You’d be surprised what stories you hear from complete strangers that spark your next entrepreneurial idea.

The Hope of Urban Prep Academy

We all want to make sure that our black children receive better educational opportunities than we ever did.

The first thing we need to believe is that a great education for our children is possible, no matter what our background is. Once we have accepted the possibility of knowledge, the opportunity will begin to present itself.

Many of the young black men who currently attend Urban Prep Academy of Chicago, Illinois thought they weren’t good enough to even desire a college degree. However, now that they have become a part of this charter school, over 95% of these young men have been accepted into a four-year university!

College is more than getting a piece of paper that says you learned something. It is about networking with people who share similar goals and it’s about learning to take care of yourself as an adult for the first time.

Everyone should have the opportunity to experience the hope and excitement that comes with opening a college acceptance letter.

Urban Prep Academy is making that happen for young boys nationwide.  Watch the video below to see for yourself!
