Eesha Khare has created a super-capacitor that can be charged astonishingly fast and stores more energy than a traditional battery. In 2013, she beat out over 1600 other contestants from all over the world to win the Young Scientist Award at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair. By the way, we should probably mention she’s did all this by the ripe age of 18, just before finishing high school.
She was always bothered by how quickly her phone would die, so with determination, curiosity, and help from mentors at her high school and the University of California, Santa Cruz, she created the super-capacitor. As Khare says, “If you have an idea, you just need to work hard to get it there.” She passes on her love of science to the school kids when volunteers to help get them interested at a young age.
