Young scientistsKids around the globe tackle challenges through science and innovation.
How does it feel to create something that may change the world? The Stream hosts an amazing group of scientists who’ve done just that. One developed a more accurate, less invasive way to diagnose breast cancer. Others created a new form of hydroponic farming and a way to display real 3D images. What’s the catch? All the inventors are teenagers.
