Bubble Wrap Contest Winner


Tucker Haas is a homeschooled boy who has a sister with cerebral palsy.
His family lives in Charlotte, NC, where we used to live. Tucker created an adaptive swing for his sister. This video was made before Tucker went to New York and WON the Bubble Wrap Young Inventors Competition. Now that his patent has been filed, it's okay to show this clip. Tucker is the second person in his family to win the bubble wrap competition!

Well done, Tucker!

I just love siblings of kids with special needs!

I think it is so cool that he has thought of how to encourage correct placements for his sister and other CP kids who may use this swing. Yeaaa Tucker!!
