Meet Ana. Ana thinks her invention, WANBRC, has the possibility to change thousands of lives. She hopes the resources of the Young Scientist Challenge will help improve WANBRC so she can help better the lives of others.

Ana’s favorite invention of the last 100 years is the 3D printer because it can create anything from toys to clothing to tools for robots. “If used effectively, it could cut manufacturing time and costs, and give the consumer incredible options for customization.”

Meet Ana's 3M Scientist Mentor, Dr. Been.
