Carson speaks to 1st-8th grade student body at North idaho S.T.E.M. Charter Academy

Carson was invited to speak to the student body of the North Idaho S.T.E.M. Charter Academy recently as their keynote speaker at the INVENT IDAHO Kick off Celebration!  He spoke of where his very first win at INVENT IDAHO has taken him....from NICKELODEON to Capitol Hill! He even got to sign a few autographs! "So, start inventing," he told the students, "You never know where your inventions may take you!"


Thrilled to have DISNEY's Family website write about Carson again!!!
