Elif Bilgin,a student-scientist, has spent two years experimenting with ways to produce a bioplastic out of used banana peels—and now her really hard work has paid off.
The teenager has been selected as a finalist in this year's Google Science Fair.
Bilgin was selected to bring her innovation to the Google Science Fair on 21 September, where she'll compete with 14 other students, all hand-picked from across the world.
Bilgin hopes to one day attend medical school and dreams of creating a greenhouse made entirely of waste!
Brilliant minds of a variety of ages continue to discover alternative methods for sustainable energy, let's hope people in charge will use them to help humanity and the planet as well!
