Engineer of the future?


6 year child genius thinking outside the box

We came across a quirky article by about a 6 year girl who took practical thinking to a new level. This child was in trouble at school and was instructed to write lines with the following sentence: I will make better choices.

Those of us that remember this punishment from schooling days will understand how long this could take to complete. However, this child has made the world's troublemakers regret actually writing their lines. We think this girl is certainly going places and possibly a future engineer?

The full article is below.



This Kid’s Genius Trick to Avoiding Punishment Will Make You Regret Writing Lines

A typical punishment for teachers to instill on students is writing the same line an absurd amount of times to make a point.

From Bart Simpson scrawling on a chalkboard to Harry Potter getting sentences marked on his hand, this always seems like a student’s worst nightmare.

However, one six-year-old girl made us troublemakers regret actually writing our lines.

This photo went viral. The lines start simply, with “I will make better choices” neatly written by the teacher on the top line.

Then, little Isabella Collier decided to get really creative. After writing the line four times, she found a way to circumvent the rest of the punishment. She noticed that any letter with a straight line can be drawn all the way down the page.

A friend of Isabella’s mother posted the image to Reddit where it quickly went viral.

“My friend’s kid is going places,” the post read. We couldn’t agree more.


Thank you to for the article.
