Gary Leschinsky

Gary Leschinsky is an 11-year-old student from the US. He is one of almost 6 million American children who have food allergies. Gary’s personal experience with food allergies and his desire to help other children made him invent the "A-Watch" for Allergies. It’s often hard for young children to understand the symptoms of an allergic reaction and ask for help. This is where the patented "A-Watch" comes to the rescue. It has multiple sensors that can detect common symptoms of an allergic reaction, notify an adult, and even help locate the child and the Epi-Pen. For his invention, Gary won numerous awards including a Thomas Edison Innovation Award and was inducted into the National Gallery for America’s Young Inventors. He pitched his invention on "Shark Tank", was featured in The New Yorker magazine, and profiled on the Johns Hopkins University website. He appeared on "The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon" with yet another invention. Gary is also playing competitive chess at the Master’s level and enjoys biking. Inventing is Gary’s passion. He wants to inspire other children to invent and be creative “because most kids think that inventing is only for adults.” Do you dare to play chess against a child prodigy? Every day in the area and meal time Gary will challenge you to beat him in this epic game.
