Young Inventor Spotlight: Samuel & Storm Drain Trash Catcher

Here at the Connecticut Science Center, we are so proud to partner with Connecticut Invention Convention to highlight kid inventors from around our state. Throughout the year, we spotlight students who have participated in Connecticut Invention Convention in our Invention Dimension gallery. We are so excited that we can highlight these amazing students in a series of inspiring recorded conversations.

This month, we are spotlighting Samuel and his invention, the Storm Drain Trash Catcher. Samuel is a very impressive young inventor who was inspired to keep our waterways clean after participating in Source to Sea clean-ups and seeing the amount of trash that accumulates in the environment.

If you want to see Samuel’s prototype in person, check out our Invention Dimension gallery during your next visit to the Connecticut Science Center. Timed tickets must be reserved online in advance of your visit at CTScienceCenter.org.
