A 14-year-old student from Connecticut has invented a foldable bulletproof wall that can be used to sheild students during school shooting.
Before I get into the details I just wanted to say how heartbreaking it is that this is on a young student's mind as they return to school. Nonetheless I'm amazed at the enginuity from Audrey Larson. Instead of worry about the politics around school shootings she focused on how she could keep herself and a her fellow classmates safe.
According the Audrey the bulletproof wall folds out and away from a wall in the classroom and connects to an another wall to form a large, bulletproof triangle that keeps kids safe.
Some experts are saying the desks and other space issues could get in the way of moving the wall quickly, but the teenager was praised for her idea.
She's hoping her patent could help create an even better design to help kids safe in school in the even of another school shooting.
