Meet Mrinali. Mrinali's low cost CPR simulator aims to help save lives in underdeveloped countries. The simulator is made of low cost materials, is portable and also has the capability to run a computer based program to provide instant feedback to the user to assure that they are performing CPR in the correct way.
Why did you enter the Young Scientist Challenge?
I entered this competition to win recognition for my invention and to be a part of the community of inventors. I also hope that if I am selected I can learn from scientists at 3M and find a mentor to continue my interest in developing other such ideas.
What is your favorite invention of the last 100 years, and why?
My favorite invention of last 100 years is the cell phone. Before, cell phone communication was limited to regular phones, which was not available everywhere in the world. Cell phones, on the other hand, has reached even some of the most remote areas, providing people ways to contact others. Because of cell phones, many lives are being saved during medical or other emergencies. People can talk to their loves ones any where in the world. Even smart phones are based on cellphone technology.
In 15 years I hope to be...
I hope to be a surgeon in the future. I also hope to be an engineer before I study to become a doctor. One day in the future I hope I can use technology such as robotics to improve patient care.
