Kedar is a 10 year old from Pennsylvania that loves pollinators. Bees are his favorite pollinator, and he’s worried about them. There aren’t enough gardens with plants that help pollinators thrive so Kedar came up with a solution. When he was just 8 years old he created an app called Pollinator for a Pet that helps people to create pollinator friendly gardens. It has information on food, water, shelter, and safety for pollinators. Kedar and his app won first place in the Paradigm Challenge in 2017. Kedar started coding with Scratch when he was just 5 years old and has appeared on Steve Harvey’s Little Big Shots, given a Ted Talk and founded his own company, Heart for Wildlife, all before the age of 10.
We are thrilled to have Kedar as our Wonder Crate Kid of the Month for February and ask him a few questions about making an impact.
What positive impact do you hope to have in the world?
When I grow up I want to find a cure for Cancer. Right now, I want to save the pollinators who are dying because of poor gardening practices.
How are you doing it?
I started a business called Heart for Wildlife to educate people about pollinator gardens, while at the same time selling gorgeous environmentally friendly products.
What skills have you used along the way?
