Sofia Tomov - A SUPER VISIT TO THE TITAN SUPERCOMPUTER

Greetings fellow science enthusiasts!

These past couple weeks, I've been developing a plan for how I'm going to address the problem of variable responses to prescription drugs. I visited the spectacular Titan supercomputer, nailed down the specific challenge I am solving, and gained inspiration for my innovation! I hope you enjoy hearing about my new developments in my first video blog post!

SOFIA - A LIGHTBULB MOMENT

Greetings, Science Enthusiasts!

I’ve always been interested in nature and science. One of my greatest joys as a young child was coaxing Painted Lady butterflies to land on my fingers, and cupping flashing fireflies in my hands.

This joy led me to my first science project when I was eight years old, titled “Butterflies in Space” -- a comparison of caterpillar development on Earth and on the International Space Station. Read more

For the past week, I narrowed my list down to three problems and then selected one to solve as my final solution. I chose them based on what I knew from my previous experience, and eliminated the ones that addressed only a limited amount of the population. Read more

SANJANA - NARROWING AND SELECTING A PROJECT IDEA

Ever since Discovery Education and 3M announced that I was a finalist, I have come up with possible problems we face that I could solve as my final project. I narrowed the list down to three problems, by choosing the ones I was most interested in solving. I also took into consideration the time I had and the scope of impact of my solution. I eliminated the ones that addressed only a limited amount of the population. I eliminated the ones that did not have a large economical impact as well. Read more
