Children are getting smarter by the day and are constantly looking to do something different to help society in ways many may haven't even thought about. Recently, the children from a school in Tamil Nadu came up with a unique idea to help the aged sweeper in their school get her work done without much trouble.

According to a report in The Better India, students at the Panchayat Union Middle School in Konerikuppa were pained when they saw the only sweeper in their school struggle to sweep because she was really old. The children put a suggestion box to ask for the best way to help her and upon finalising made quite a unique creation. They decided to take it upon themselves to help her out and built a sweeper that can cover more area than a broom.

Taking inspiration from their geometry class, they gathered all the waste material on their campus including coconut leaves, a stick, and wheels from a cycle that wasn't being used. They fixed the wheels on either side of the stick and tied coconut leaves to make a large makeshift broom, but only on wheels. Their playground being big, the broom helps cover a large area at once thus lessening the burden on the aged woman sweeping their school.

While the students didn't immediately achieve success, as there were errors in functioning but taking help from each other, they finally built the broom and it is definitely going to help the sweeper sweep in an easier way.
