Anushka Naiknaware    

Inventor, Scientist & TED Speaker; Youngest Winner of the Google Science Fair

In 2016, at age 13, Anushka Naiknaware was the youngest winner of the Google Science Fair in 2016, with her invention of a clever new bandage that tells caregivers when it needs to be changed.

When Naiknaware was young, she would spend hours at the chemistry lab at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry in Portland and not leave until she had finished every experiment available. Her early interest was chemistry and mathematics, but she quickly learned that every branch of science is connected, including physics, biology and computer science. In fact, her winning Google Science Fair project loops together materials science, fractal math and biology.

Naiknaware has won many awards in notable science and math competitions. She's a TED and TEDx Speaker, and is currently studying Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at MIT.
