Meet Brooke. With a Utility Patent Application pending for her invention iCUpooch, an interactive care unit for dogs and the subject of her video submission entry for the Young Scientist Challenge, it’s no wonder she is one of the 2013 finalists.

Brooke is determined to pursue a career in science. She would like to do something where she can help to improve the lives of others, whether it's by finding cures for diseases, innovating new technology, or helping to solve crimes.
Why did you enter the Young Scientist Challenge?
I heard about the Young Scientist Challenge from my school. I had already started work on my invention, and thought that entering the competition would be really fun -- especially if I got to make a video and explain my product to the judges! Plus, who wouldn't want to be named America's Young Scientist?
What is your favorite invention of the last 100 years, and why?
What truly fascinates me about science is how it is ever-changing! You're always discovering and learning something new! I think it's super cool to be able and look at things in a way you hadn't ever thought to before! Science is the reason we continue to technologically advance as a society! I just love being a part of something so exciting!
In 15 years I hope to be...
I definitely would like to pursue a career in science! I am interested in possibly going into Medicine, Genetics, or Forensic Science. I think that all science is really fascinating! I would like to do something where I can help to improve the lives of others, whether it's by finding cures for diseases, innovating new technology, or helping to solve crimes!
