I'm probably not as good in the topics that I'm less passionate about than the ones I spend all my time on.
My attention span has never been on point - in school as well - unless I'm very, very, very into something.
I just think we need to find a way, because we don't dispose of them very well; they have very bad chemicals in them. If we could just find a way, maybe start at a small step with eliminating batteries perhaps in small electronic devices, and then possibly in the future go bigger, that would be great.
I'm sure we've all had that annoying experience when we desperately need a flashlight, we find one, and the batteries are out. Imagine how much money we would save and the amount of toxins leached into the soil, etc., reduced if we didn't use any batteries in flashlights!
My biggest hurdle usually has to do with concentration. I have a tendency to kind of start working on something, and then, all of a sudden, I'll totally divert and do something totally different.
I'd take garbage, and I'd glue them together and create inventions.
I'm really interested in harvesting surplus energy, energy that surrounds but we never really use.
It's very hard to juggle a science fair project as well as your schoolwork.
I was listed in 'Time Magazine''s 'Thirty under Thirty' and have given three TED Talks, too.
Maybe thermoelectricity will be able to power a tablet someday.
