Fighting global hunger is the main objective of eight-year old Arwa in coming up with her idea of a 'never-ending-food machine.'
Originally from Kenya, Arwa said: "I see kids getting hungry so I thought of coming up with a device that when you shake it, voila, food will come out!"
Unlike in the movie Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs where food fall down from the sky, Arwa said her idea is "more like a small food bank."
"And we should have something that will sort out only healthy foods," she added.
Transform a car to boat
Nine-year old Guillermo from Spain suggested a 'shape-shifting vehicle' to get out of Dubai's heavy rush-hour traffic.
"If there's a traffic on Shaikh Zayed Road and you're stuck in your car but you're near the Dubai Canal, then you can transform your car into a boat so you can move ahead," he said.
Alternatively, his group mate Mrinal submitted an 'anti-traffic boredom entertainment device.' "When you're caught in the traffic, your parents can just press a button and an educational screen will pop up," he proposed.
Mobile pool, clean toilets
Three to four-year-old kids at Mufida Digeil group suggested the best way for kids to beat the summer heat whilst enjoying a fun outdoor activity: a mobile pool.
Getting ahead of their age and anticipating that nano-technology will be well-developed when they grow up, some even suggested a "pocket mobile pool."
Using cartons, the children also made a prototype and painted it in various colours. Another student suggested a more practical approach to good housekeeping: "I want a self-cleaning bathroom, one that will take the foul odour away automatically," four-year old Jena said.
