Why did you enter the Young Scientist Challenge?
I love science and I want to change the world for the better. I think by making my invention public, this competition will help me do just that.
What is your favorite invention of the last 100 years, and why?
My favorite invention of the last 100 years is the internet because it allows easy access to a ton of information.
In 15 years I hope to be...
A materials scientist.
