Following his regional win at the Thomas Edison Regional Inventors Fair, Hayden Fuller proceeded to take home the trophy at state competition and is now headed to the National Invention Convention at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Mich.
Fuller, a 10-year-old, 4th Grade student at Rayma C Page Elementary and a resident of Miromar Lakes, invented the “Life Pod,” a rapidly deployable, portable safety shelter for victims of natural disasters. The Life Pod would offer a highly insulated, climate controlled shelter for the protection of the elderly or others in need following a hurricane or other weather emergency, including cleanup crews, safety officers and firefighters.
In addition to his Invention Convention success, Fuller recently was awarded a Buccaneers STEM Scholarship to attend a camp at Florida SouthWestern State College for three weeks in July. During STEM Buccaneers Camp, students will be researching local water quality and addressing issues like red tide and green algae. In April, Fuller also was invited to attend a class on entrepreneurship at Florida Gulf Coast University.
