Kid President: I haven’t always
been the Kid President. My first dream, I wanted to be a great inventor. I actually had a few pretty
good ideas! My magnify glasses, it helps you My magnify glasses,
it helps you see things that you need to see! It also gives you headaches.
A really good invention, makes the world more awesome.
Because the world is full of problems. There’s also lots of problem solvers! Kids like Peyton! He’s 11
years old and he invented retractable training wheels for bikes. Sandless sandbags. All sorts
of stuff! And this awesome girl Brooke, when she was 12 years old she created a video system
to help owners stay connected to their dogs! Creating new stuff out of your brain could
be hard, but I think I may have my next great invention. Every time when I try to clean
the house, my cat goes crazy! The problem, he hates the vacuum cleaner. I want to solve
this problem by making the first catuum cleaner! To maker this happen I’m going to need some
help! Time to meet with big time inventors! They make crazy stuff here! “Hello!”
Christine: Hi! KP: I want to invent something.
Christine: You want to invent something, alright. First you’re going to need some safety glasses. KP: Cool!
Christine: Alright let’s show you around! KP: Do you have any corn dogs?
Christine: Um.. KP: How many days would it take to build this?
Mike: It takes about 18 days. KP: It would probably take me a whole year actually.
Mike: You think so? Seth: You know I think if one of us was to try
to build by ourselves it would probably take a whole year. We all just do a little piece at a time. You put your little part on and I put my part on and then
together we just build this up together! Eric: Hey! Where did you come from?
KP: I just came from here! How are babies invented?
[laughs] So I can be an inventor like you?
Eric: Certainly, it’s all up to you! Anybody can do it! You just have to get a dream,
get a goal, you go for it! Seth: What are you inventing?
KP: I’m inventing a vacuum cleaner that does not scare away my cats.
Seth: [laughs] I like that! KP: Well it’s in my head but won’t come out
what I want it to be. Nick: Would it be a problem if it was slightly
different? KP: No!
Well my invention is in my head but I just can’t make it real.
Mike: Yeah I know, I understand but there are plenty of avenues to go to, to help you
out with that. I mean there’s your schooling that you did, teachers I’m sure that you met,
out on the web there’s a place called Quirky that can also help you, get the help that
you need! Nick: Did you have a good day today?
KP: Yeah! Nick: Cheers!
KP: It was really fun to meet them! I learned that scientists eat corn dogs and some of
them got really good mustaches. I learned that it’s okay to fail if you’re afraid to
mess something up, well that’s the first lesson of building something. That’s what they all
told me bro! Well the cat vacuum probably need to go back to the drawing board on that one.
Because the cat killed it. [laughs]
Killed it! Like totally messed up his head! Totally okay though! It’s okay to make mistakes.
Y’all can’t stop. Gotta keep creating, gotta keep dancing! What invention will you make
that will change the world? Seeing jet engines is always something that I wanted to do. So
thanks to everybody at GE for letting me visit! See more of their cool stuff that they’re
