What were you up to, at 15? Probably nothing that great to remember. But some teenage minds have already made their mark through their breakthrough endeavors. These teenage kids have already geared up to save the planet with their meritorious inventions. What do you normally expect from a teenager? A rebel of their homes, a homecoming queen or a classic dude of his grade. Rather than having a time of their own, these young brains have moved out to create a history.
Many teenagers to even 4th graders are out there experimenting their brainwork to a range of fields from all around the globe. From young musicians to sportspersons; from actors to young scientists. Historically speaking, there have always been many who showed prodigious ability since their childhood. Alexander Pope, Pablo Picasso, Bobby Fisher and not to forget, the father of classical music, who himself was a teenage child, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
Here are some ultimate teenage researchers who have moved their way with the sheer passion and shining hard work. Keep your jaws dropped for these 4 real talents, out there to make you jealous.
1. Keiana Cave, New Orleans
In 2010, the Gulf of Mexico saw the event of the Deepwater Horizon accident, creating 4.8 million barrels of the oil spill in the waters, which held a great ecological importance.
The repercussions saw many dolphins dying at an alarming rate and some disturbing sights of deformed sea creatures like shrimps with missing eyes and fishes oozing out sores and lesions. Cave saw the urgent need of understanding the cause of such a mishap. Cave was just 15 at the time when she gathered her attention to uncovering the truth. With her research work she concluded that when UV rays fall over the soil bed of the ocean, certain chemical reactions take place leading to the emission of poisonous carcinogenic chemicals.
She submitted two papers and two patents regarding her amazing discovery. Since then, her start-up Mare has been working towards creating ways to stop the damage. Hail to the saviour!!
