Kid invention saves birds’ lives

23 01 2009

Check out this cool story about Charlie Sobcov, eighth grader, who came up with an idea for saving birds from crashing into glass windows. Charlie invented a plastic window decal painted to reflect ultraviolet (UV) light. Humans can’t see UV light so the decal appears invisible to us. Birds can see UV light and so the decal will be like a big “stop” sign! Great invention, Charlie!
