When I was in Year 2 we were learning about explorers and the planet and such, and Mrs Bowden asked if anyone thought there was a place on Earth that hadn’t be discovered. I put my hand up and said, “Yes. There has to be.” Because I couldn’t imagine a world where all the exploring had been done before I turned up.
Well, we may have put our filthy fingerprints on every bit of land the globe over, but that doesn’t mean humanity has stopped dreaming up new ways to combat invisible problems.
Maybe you think it’s just a pizza box that turns into cardboard plates and a container to save leftover slices. But it’s actually a brilliant symbol of the human mind at work, engineering away to make our lives just that little bit better.
It’s inspiring, it’s creative and it’s delicious.
