Early life

Invention

At age 14, Chavez conceived the Hot Seat alarm as a science fair project, after hearing that many babies died from being left in cars. She later refined the idea and patented it, helping people with newborn care.

In 2019 she announced a new invention, a baby bottle that stores water and dried formula separately, for mixing when needed.
