Hydroponic Carbon Solution

About the Idea

Meet Yosef. Yosef developed a solution to mitigate earth’s rising temperatures by planting hydroponic trees in the ocean.

Why did you enter the 3M Young Scientist Challenge?

I developed a solution that uses a low tech, proven, technology for a big problem. The earth’s climate needs to be saved, and fast! Also, my teacher encouraged me to enter.

What is your favorite invention of the last 100 years, and why?

I would have to say the World Wide Web because it allows anyone in the world who has access to find out about anything.

In 15 years I hope to be...

a Ph.D. student in math or engineering at MIT.

To infinity to the power of infinity!
