Bill Gates: Encouraging kids to innovate

I think exposing kids to the stories of innovation is something that’s important. I think having them get where the frontier is, what the tough problems are. I’m often saying to my son when he asks, “Is there a product that can do this?” I say, “No, you’ll have a chance to invent that.” Show him that he has that ability and should be encouraged. So recent examples, I think, are particularly powerful. Then even the stories of where somebody tried to innovate but hit a dead end get a sense of why it’s so daunting and yet the benefits are so incredible when it does come to pass.
