Tamaulipas: 11 Year old boy creates a "Bulletproof backpack" for school science project

Original article available at ZETA
Translated by El Wachito


During the "Creativity and innovation state contest: ExpoCiencias Tamaulipas 2016",  organized by the Secretary of State Education, an 11 year old boy, named Juan David Hernandez Rojas, presented a project named "Security backpack", which was inspired on the violence that Reynosa currently suffers.




The kid assured that his creation could help his classmates and other kids to survive a firefight or prevent them from becoming victims of a crime, because "there is a lot of criminal activity" in his city, said the sixth grade student of the Lazaro Cardenas del Rio Elementary School.


Hernandez Rojas explained that his project is known as "Security backpack, and that the backpack makes the difference between life and death, or preventing abductions... the problem is that nowadays unfortunately, there is a lot of firefights in my city and there is a lot of robbery, kidnappings, firefights and armed thefts. And because of this problems I created the backpack to help us remain safe", indicated the child.

The backpack has a metallic plate that serves as protection against bullets, its also weatherproof, it has a GPS system connected to the telephones of our parents, and LED flashlight and an alarm that can be activated in case of being kidnapped.

"The backpack comes with a bulletproof vest. In a common situation, such as a firefight, it will be useful in order to protect ourselves", said the minor. "Put the backpack like this: get on the ground just like Civil Protection advises, but this time grab the backpack and cover your head and back, this will prevent that a lost bullet can hit you", the student explained during his presentation of his science project.

"In case of being kidnapped, it has an alarm that can be activated in order for people to notice the situation and hopefully provide help", stated the student.

Mayra Iveth Morin Arevalo, a Professor of Juan David, explained to the local media that the cost of producing the backpack its of approximately 800 pesos, and that the most expensive part was the bulletproof metals.

"One time a violent situation happened in the school, and the kids had to get on the ground, from there Juan David, who is one of the best students had the idea to create the backpack. His idea its really good because it will save the life of a lot of kids" explained the professor of the child.

In the same contest, another student named, Jesus Martinez Baldaza, presented a prototype of a cell phone that emits an electrical discharge that hurts however tries to steal the cell phone.

    1. You beat me to the punch. I was just about to say the same thing. Yes it's very innovative. But sad that this has to be what he creates. Still well done for him.

    2. That's an interesting standpoint. Most of the parents (that aren't connected to crime) live in that area because their options are limited, correct? If they protest or speak out, they are usually harmed or killed. I'm not being snarky - what options do they have to protect their kids? I can tell you what I'd do, but my resources are not as limited. We can't even seem to protect our kids very well in the US, either. Sad that the kid has to do it, but I don't see it as mutually exclusive that either the kid does this or parents do more to protect him.

    3. When the frackers come over to take posession of the land and the waters, there will be a lot of steel pipes around to make millions of steel proof pads, but there will be.no medicines to cure the land or the people's cancers, ecuador has not got oil companies Texaco or ExxonMobil to clean up their mess they left behind, that pollution now belongs to the Amazonas river and to the ecuadoran people.
      --Mexican priista senator penchyna says: "on the US, frackers clean up, and return the land to the owners, and raise cows and chickens and corn on the lands", but he does not say how much the frackers will pay mexico to get ownership of the pollution or the pensions, because, of course, third world countries have no rights, make all the shields you want...

    4. Bullet proof backpacks were created over a decade ago by two American parents (there's YT video showcasing them). What are you doing to protects kids besides dishing out blame??

      In California people under the age of 18, must where helmets when riding: BICYCLES, skateboards, rollerblades, scooters. It's rarely enforced, but it is the law. So?...

    1. 5:55 "in mexico" we are lucky, the soldiers and policia judicial federal kidnapp kids from high school or teacher's college , 20 or 40 or more at a time, repeatedly, and then blame the policia municipal and mini-cartels, for their dirty deeds, while the US looks the other way but full of purposeful righteousness, the US is not going to badmouth a friendly regime just because of their high crimes and misdemeanors...

    2. My man its comments like this that create racial tensions and divide us as Humans. Talking nonsense and creating hatred has never fixed anything. I urge you to be part of a solution.

    4. Fack racial tensions, denounce wrong doing and if you hurt somebody's feelings, more blessings to you, now remember that Jesus Christmas was crucified in part for kicking the money changers aka the pharisees and the philistines out of his father's house, being polite only leads to more abuse for you.
      And more nazi extreme rightistas in power over our heads and dead bodies, the extreme corporate welfare queen spelialists don't ever behave politely, why should we?...

    Lets hope Juan has a bright future and the all good influences to keep him

    that walk the same path.
