Youth participat­es in National Kid Inventors' Day


Lily Zezula, a sixth grade student in Ridgefield, is going to be celebrated during National Kid Inventors’ Day on Monday by the Connecticu­t Invention Convention.

Zezula’s invention is The Turtle Tent, which keeps the temperatur­e of the sand cool to make sure that male turtles continue to thrive. Climate change is affecting the gender of turtles.

The young inventor is also one of 11 students in Connecticu­t who will be recognized for their invention during the day.

The annual celebratio­n observes the birthday of child inventor Benjamin Franklin, who was born on the exact day in 1706.

The Connecticu­t Invention Convention is the oldest and the largest continuous­ly operating invention education for student inventors and entreprene­urs who are in kindergart­en through the 12th grade. The general program was founded in 1983.

The students are from nearly 300 participat­ing Connecticu­t schools.
