Compass partnered with the 100 People Foundation and Intel to explore this question through the eyes of high school scientists that represent the next generation of thought-leaders and innovators. These are the stories of 4 students who tackled challenges in their local communities through science, coming up with solutions that landed them coveted spots as finalists at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair.
Meet the Featured Students:
Raquel Redshirt won a special award at Intel ISEF for creating a homemade solar oven out of found materials around the Navajo Nation where she lives. Dzarul Dol Malek invented an organic battery out of weeds and brown sugar from his sugarcane farm in rural Malaysia. And Clara Duarte and Emilce Espinoza tackled deforestation in their community in northern Argentina by establishing a protected nature reserve.
Intel ISEF Students at Compass:
Compass has invited three Intel ISEF winners to attend as participants and add to the rich dialogue of the conference. Participants will have an opportunity to meet Marian Bechtel, Matthew Feddersen and Blake Marggraff, both on stage and off, and find out more about what drives the innovators of tomorrow.
