Some science experiments don’t require a big lab, expensive equipment or complex research methodologies to yield high-impact data.
That’s one of the lessons learned by this year’s Broadcom MASTERS® Grand Prize winner: Annie Ostojic, 13, of Munster, Ind., among other important discoveries she’s acquired through an exploration of physics, food science and materials engineering.
Ostojic said that as a child, her natural curiosity grew while doing what she described as “kitchen science” with her family.
Inspired by the less-than-appetizing results of an unevenly heated frozen dinner, Ostojic set out to experiment with various types of food, reflective materials and packaging design to see if she could improve the outcomes of microwave cooking. Her findings guided her to design a more […]
