Ten year old boy's pooper scooper invention
Most companies start with a complicated business plan, not this one.
My name is Larry Clark and I'm the dad of the ten year old boy, Aaron, that invented a dog poop scoop in the fifth grade.The S.A.S.I. Scoop was started partly because he hated to pick up dog poop and he needed and idea for a project that was due at school.
Aaron talked about making a motorized poop scoop a year or two earlier, but like most parents we just said ok, and never thought about it. As we found out later he was very serious about making a better poop scoop that would Scoop And Sack It in one motion. This was how the company was started and the scoop was named, using the first letters of the job he wanted it to do S.A.S.I..
A ten year old has a great imagination and looks at a problem from a different perspective. I find it amazing that my son came up with this new idea and no one else did. His idea has led to other poop scoops using plastic bags and telescoping handles since his invention.
Maybe it's a good idea to listen to your children the next time they come up to you and say I have an idea.
