What Alva would
Like to Share with the Hero Clubhouse Members:
When I was a young boy, I was very curious and asked a lot of
questions to figure out how things worked. When I was six years
old, I saw a goose sitting on some eggs, and then the eggs hatched.
I tried hatching goose eggs myself by sitting on them. Although
the eggs never hatched, I learned how and why goose eggs do
hatch. My curiosity and persistency stayed with
me my entire life, and I was able to invent many helpful items,
including the light bulb, phonograph, and movie project. I'll
be thinking about you the next time you TRY AN EXPERIMENT OR
INVENT SOMETHING OF YOUR OWN. Good Luck!
