Allie - Maker, Builder, Inventor
"You are going to change the world someday." I hear this often and it makes me think. Do I not exist yet? Do I have to wait to make a difference?
I'm Allie Weber. I am a kid, 12 years old to be exact. I really like to invent! This love of inventing, making and building, has earned me a spot as a top 10 finalist in the Discovery Education 3M Young Scientist Challenge with my innovation idea of the Blow Dart Spirometer. The Blow Dart Spirometer was designed to use in children's hospitals for a fun way to measure lung function. This is a test kids in hospitals may need to do up to 12 times a day. This makes it more fun, and helps kids just be kids even when in a hospital.
Here is a little video I made to introduce myself, my way of thinking, and to answer some questions about the beginning of my Discover Education 3M Young Scientist journey!
I am so grateful for the opportunity I have to use my love of making, building and inventing to inspire a others to make invent and build too, and to show others that we can make a difference now. We don't have to wait.
Thanks for following me on my Young Scientist Journey.
