Every Idea Matters! Ideas create Generations!
We believe that every idea matters. The difference between ideas is whether they have been realized successfully or unsuccessfully. Here are a few examples of ideas that were initially unsuccessful but proved to be great inventions later on:
- Saccharin was discovered by a rather unusual set of circumstances. The now well known pink packet of fake sugar was discovered in 1879 by one Constantin Fahlberg, a chemist looking for alternative uses for coal tar. After a long day of work, he came home to find that his wife’s biscuits tasted a lot sweeter. Surprisingly, she hadn’t added extra sugar, he was the one who actually forgot to wash his hands after a day at work. The rest is history.
- We all love potato chips, but do you know how they were invented? New York chef George Crum accidentally invented them back in 1853 when a patron kept sending his French fries back because they were soggy. Consequently, Crum fried the extra thinly sliced potatoes to a crisp and then proceeded to add a lot of salt. The customer really liked this version and so potato chips were born.
- It may be hard to believe but the synthetic dye was discovered when chemist William Perkin was researching a cure for malaria. He changed the word of fashion instead. While conducting an experiment in 1856 that seemed to have gone incredibly wrong, he created a murky mess that ended up radiating a beautiful color. Not quite what Perkin was hoping for but still quite the invention!
So, do not let your idea go undeveloped. You never know if it is the next big thing unless you try it. The idea behind the Pitch Your Idea Scholarship is to give a helping hand in the process. And we will be giving 15 of those every month. Make your entry count and do not miss this opportunity to find your place on this list. Inspirational stories can be found everywhere. Why not make your idea one of them and reserve your spot in the history books? Your idea could also inspire other young people to apply for opportunities and pursue their dreams.
