Theo- Choosing a Problem

Hey there,

This is my second blog post during the summer portion of the 3M Young Scientist. In my opinion, choosing a problem to tackle is one of the most important aspects of creating something impactful. Choosing a problem that affects many people is key to making something useful, so I chose a problem relating to mobile phones, something that almost everyone can experience or at least relate to. Phones nowadays are made more and more advanced, from passwords to fingerprint to face recognition, but the creators just can’t seem to get the battery efficiency quite right, so I decided to tackle the problem extending battery life and boosting batteries in urgent situations.
