Meet Hannah, America's 2015 Top Young Scientist
Meet Hannah Herbst, America’s 2015 Top Young Scientist. Inspired by her 9 year old pen pal living in Ethiopia who lacks a reliable source of power and electricity, Hannah created an energy probe prototype that seeks to offer a stable power source to developing countries by using untapped energy from ocean currents and submitted this innovative idea to the 2015 Discovery Education 3M Young Scientist Challenge. Chosen as a national finalist, Hannah worked one-on-one with a 3M Scientist Mentor to bring her idea to life and was awarded the grand prize of $25,000! As America’s Top Young Scientist, Hannah has traveled the nation to share her innovation appearing on Fox and Friends, Wake Up With Al and at the Social Innovation Summit in Silicon Valley.
