006: How to Stimulate a Young Inventor with Angelina Arora


Parenting an Award Winning Young Scientist requires a particular type of attitude. Just ask 16-year-old Bio-Plastic Inventor, Angelina Arora, who created an industry-grade bio-plastic from prawn shells and the cocoons of silks worms at the age of 15. In this episode, Angelina share insights into how she is parented, educated and the personal beliefs that helped her win BHP’s coveted 2018 Science and Engineering Awards. Now, Angelina is preparing to blitz her University Entry Exams with the support of her friends and family. Her next plan is to study Medicine! Listen up as we explore: 1. How Angelina’s parents supported her passion for science and inventing. 2. How to seek out a support network of teachers, professors and mentors to make your dreams a reality. 3. How to find friends who are equally passionate about their own endeavours, while balancing schoolwork with international research.
