Meet Arthur. In one of many endeavors to learn more about science, Arthur hopes the Young Scientist Challenge will help feed his never-ending curiosity of science. With an interest in preventing some of the global issues faced today, Arthur's invention aims to reduce the CO2 emissions that cargo ships release daily. Arthur hopes to improve the environmental and human health problems by reducing cargo ship emissions, using wind power and a helium-filled parachute to propel cargo ships to their final destinations.
Why did you enter the Young Scientist Challenge?
I would love to find a way to help bring awareness and solutions to global epidemics. In addition, I've been told that I have an "insatiable curiosity" and I feel that finding a mentor in the field of science would provide me with a challenge I so deeply want that is not being met in my classroom at school.
What is your favorite invention of the last 100 years, and why?
The UAV- unmanned aerial vehicle. UAVs save so many lives because they allow our armed services to go into dangerous areas without being physically present. They are also used for dangerous search and rescue missions.
In 15 years I hope to be...
An entrepreneur with many patents that will be used to save lives, improve the environment and give people a better quality of life. (I've applied for one patent already. )
