Gen Z Innovators Changing the World
Amazing discoveries are happening in the garages and high school science classes of young pioneers. A 17-year-old invented color-changing stitches, dyed with beet juice, to provide early warning signs of infection. A Time Magazine “Kid of the Year” is building a device to detect contaminants in the water supply and using AI to call out cyberbullying. Another teenager developed a global COVID-19 case tracker that earned Anthony Fauci’s praise and still another championed legislation in Oregon so that students can take off “mental health days” when they need it. The vision, creativity, and determination of these youthful innovators suggest the next generation may truly change the world.
