Innovation Saves African Child from Deadly Lions

Richard Turere from trinityafer.comAt 13 years old, Richard Turere invented “Lion Lights” to scare lions away from his family’s cattle and at the same time protect lions from the hunters in his village. He started with experiments with lights and scarecrows, and eventually he used his limited knowledge of electronics to create a working schematic for a device that would keep lions away for good.

He’s a remarkable example of what happens when even a young human puts their mind to problem solving using science.
