I love going to these things and seeing what these young kids are inventing!! You will be amazed at what they come up with. We must support them because from here, this is where they will be discovered. It also gives them a chance to try out their entrepreneurial skills I remember myself when I was a kid and I wanted to concoct so many things and wanted to sell them. Back then there was no bazaars so it was difficult. So to those of you with great ideas and want to test it out, look for RJ
