Science & Innovation | Embracing the Opportunity to Change Lives
Educators, Students, and the General Public alike will all appreciate this inspirational and informative talk. Delivered from the heart, Raymond shares his interdisciplinary research journey, from his first, life-changing spark at age 12 to his garnering the top prize at Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) many years later. From the perspective of a finalist and an organizer, Raymond further discusses the unique takeaways of these hands-on research competitions, and describes how they have supported his personal and interpersonal growth in the grand scheme of things.
Power in the Collective: How the Next Generation is Changing Sustainability
In the world of climate change, energy crisis, and natural resource shortages, the up-and-coming generation of youth is not one to sit passively. As the founder of Sustainable Youth Canada (SYC), a Canadian non-profit with chapters from coast to coast run 100% by youth in high school and university, Raymond shares SYC’s founding story and aim of creating a national identity for youth to unite for sustainability, and highlights some of the initiatives, events, and actions that young people are taking to create a more sustainable future.
Germs: How They Travel & How We Can Stop Them
Raymond Wang isn’t even 20 years old, but he’s already helping to build a healthier future. Using fluid dynamics, he created computational simulations of how air moves on airplanes, and what he found is disturbing — when a person sneezes on a plane, the airflow actually helps to spread pathogens to other passengers. Wang shares an unforgettable animation of how a sneeze travels inside a plane cabin as well as his prize-winning solution: a small, fin-shaped device that increases fresh airflow in airplanes and redirects pathogen-laden air out of circulation.
