Young Inventors' Simple Idea Changes Lives
23-year-olds Cynthia Poon and Maeve Jopson are the inventors of O-Rings, a set of four stackable rings with different colors, textures, fillings, densities, and weights. Created specifically for Megan, a 12-year-old who is blind and has impaired motor skills, the O-Rings provide a new and interesting way for her to interact and learn, as well as encourage her to be more interactive in social settings. This new tool will be used in sensory integration gyms which will give children with disabilities the opportunity to benefit physically and mentally from working with the O-Rings.
