    The fifth grader has invented something called the Oasis, a clever little gadget that monitors the temperature inside the car.

    Once it gets to a certain level, the device emits cool air while simultaneously alerting parents and authorities via an antenna.

    The idea for the Oasis came to Bishop following the tragic story of a baby who died after being left behind in a overheated minivan near his hometown

    Bishop already has a provisional patent on the device and has so far managed to raise over $24,000 for his invention on GoFundMe.

    If you would like to donate to help raise money to start production on this life-saving car seat device, you can donate to his GoFundMe page.
