Hannah will share information about her unique invention, talk about her experiences in the challenge and answer questions from aspiring young scientists.

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. Hannah submitted this innovative idea to the 2015 Discovery Education 3M Young Scientist Challenge and after working one-on-one with a 3M Scientist Mentor to bring her idea to life, she 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 national media outlets such as Fox and Friends, Wake Up With Aland at the Social Innovation Summit in Silicon Valley.
