Teens Making an Impact
Many teenagers today are concerned about their places in the world and their roles as global citizens. They’re developing a sense of social responsibility. They’re also developing a personal sense of values and looking for role models. This month, we’re pulling from our programs for teenagers to share real stories of teenagers who are making an impact on their community and on the world.
When Jack Andraka was 15 years old, he invented a test to detect certain types of cancer. Jack hopes he can inspire other young people to pursue their passions. He believes that everyone has the power to make a difference. In this lesson from Impact 3, Jack explores why it’s important to be determined.
Your turn! Jack says that “failure is one of the best things you can do in science?” What are some other situations where failing might be a good thing?
