The YSC Project
The project that helped me feel most confident and made me feel like I could actually change the world was the (Y)oung (S)cientist (C)hallenge. This project was to identify a problem that directly impacts you, family, community, etc. using science and innovation. The idea or final product that we make has to be innovative, and cannot just make a new use for an existing product. The problem that I have identified in my everyday life that impacts me is long time waiting for a parking space, and I'm pretty sure that there are many other people who have this type of issue as well. My solution was called the (P)arking (A)utomatic (R)esponsible (I)nstalled (S)ystem; a parking system that helps you get a parking system fast and easy. The video for explaining the system is above this, and I really enjoyed doing this. This was not really a testable solution, but I was able to make a model of how I wanted the system to work out as in real life.
