Meet Hannah, America’s Top Young Scientist

Meet Hannah Herbst, America’s 2015 Top Young Scientist. Inspired by her 9 year old pen pal living in Ethiopia who lacks a reliable source of power and electricity, Hannah created an energy probe prototype that seeks to offer a stable power source to developing countries by using untapped energy from ocean currents and submitted this innovative idea to the 2015 Discovery Education 3M Young Scientist Challenge. Chosen as a national finalist, Hannah worked one-on-one with a 3M Scientist Mentor to bring her idea to life and was awarded the grand prize of $25,000! As America’s Top Young Scientist, Hannah has traveled the nation to share her innovation appearing on Fox and Friends, Wake Up With Al and at the Social Innovation Summit in Silicon Valley.

On Tuesday, March 8th, Hannah joins us live to share her unique invention, talk about her experiences in the challenge and answer questions from aspiring young scientists. Tune in to hear your questions answered live, and see how you could be America’s 2016 Top Young Scientist!
