Alexia invented the Oops! Proof No-Spill Feeding Bowl at the age of 11 for a science fair project. This unique bowl prevents messes because spillage is caught in a larger outer bowl which attaches to the smaller bowl nested within. The lid, which fastens to the larger bowl, has a hole in the center which allows access to the inner bowl.
Alexia secured a patent for her bowl which is now manufactured by Little Kids® and sold in stores nationwide.
After graduation, Alexia plans to attend college to become a veterinarian.
