Kid Creation

Stimulating creativity in children through DIY-focused innovations
Implications - Child creativity is becoming a concern for adults. Researcher Kyung Hee Kim's 2010 study of 300,000 creativity tests dating back to the '70s uncovered that creativity has been decreasing among American children, and that since 1990, children have become less able to produce unique and imaginative ideas. This harsh truth has spawned a number of innovations aimed at sparking childhood creativity, ranging from mobile DIY labs to creative apps for kids. The good news is that creativity can indeed be cultivated, and that any innovation that helps to nurture creativity among youth is sure to be welcomed with open arms.
