Meet Meghna. After learning how difficult it is to analyze the quality of hard to reach water sources, Meghna created a device to help access hard to reach waterways. Monitoring temperature, conductivity and pH levels, Meghna hopes to revolutionize the way scientists conduct research in the future.
Why did you enter the Young Scientist Challenge?
I entered the Young Scientists Challenge because I would like Aquabot to become known as a useful application for water quality testing. I want scientists to recognize this robot as a tool that would be extremely useful to have.
What is your favorite invention of the last 100 years, and why?
My favorite invention of the last 100 years is the 3D-printer. Not only was it a useful resource for my invention, but it has helped humans in many ways. Currently, scientists are working on a way to 3D-print body parts, which would be revolutionary for the human race. I appreciate inventions that have such positive impacts on the world.
In 15 years I hope to be...
a robotics engineer. I want to create innovative, unique, and helpful robots that help humans and make our world a safer and healthier. Eventually, I would like to create one which becomes a Robot Hall of Fame inductee.
