Nine-year-old Prince Nallamothula, a young inventor and fourth-grader at Curtsinger Elementary School, has made a name for himself nationally and in the community as he seeks to grow, learn and set a precedent for young people through his entrepreneurial spirit.
His national recognition came in November 2018 when his Happy Family smart phone app won anaward at the Young Inventor Challenge at the Chicago Toy and Game Fair and The International Paradigm Challenge, which is considered to be the Nobel Prize of science for kids.
When Prince is not working on his next idea, he loves to study science, play guitar, sketch and play sports. He is also a member of Frisco Chamber of Commerce’s Young Entrepreneur Academy (YEA!). Prince shares, “With the help of my parents, teachers and Frisco community leaders, I try to understand the problems we have and come up with solutions. Be it waste management, recycling, explaining the importance of hygiene and health to children or encouraging family wellness through interesting activities, I do what I can at my level.”
Prince is working on ideas regarding recycling and food safety and is looking for investors to bring his ideas to life. Some of Prince’s recent awards include the International Echo Hero Award (Notable), 2019 STEM Scout of the Year, Code Launch 7 Finalist, University of North Texas full-ride scholarship and 2018 Young Inventor. Mayor Jeff Cheney even declared January 15, 2019, as “Prince Nallamothula Day!”
