Have you noticed that the children in school today are learning at a rate much faster and/or advanced than anytime before. As you sit through the graduation ceremonies this spring all of the administrators talk of this “new day” and how they are training them for jobs that don’t exist yet….obviously!
Eesha Khare is an 18-year-old high school student from Saratoga, Calif., who graduated last week, but is a lot more advanced than your average 18-year-old. In May, she won a $50,000 prize at one of the nation’s biggest science fairs, the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair, for her invention of a device that can transfer “enough energy to potentially charge a cellphone in 20 to 30 seconds,” according to MSNBC. The battery will also last you about 10 times the 1,000 charges today’s cell phone batteries are good for.
“I’m a teenager and I have a cellphone and my cellphone battery always dies, so I was really looking for a way to improve energy storage,’’ Eesha Khare said on TODAY Tuesday. “That’s how I came across supercapacitors.’’
Khare admitted on the Today show that the invention is still being perfected and the market will likely not see any remnant of her invention for another two years.
She’s truly one of our best and brightest and we applaud her for being a great influence on all kids, but also for saving our cell phones from the infamous “dead cell.”
