Zoey’s talk will focus on the process behind a large, daunting task, and the importance of goals and motivation in youth. For her, learning to find her motivation at a young age has been extremely inspiring, and she hopes she can pass this onto others.
Zoey Jones is a grade 10 student attending Stratford Hall in Vancouver. She has been heavily involved in the theatre department at her school, but this year, also took a step into the sciences. Zoey participated in the Greater Vancouver Regional Science Fair last year, but this year she took on a bigger project and made it to the fair again.
Her project will also be seen at Canada Wide Science Fair this May, and involved the creation of a water saving shower head. She was able to use computational fluid dynamics simulations to test different designs of her shower head, and come to final design that involved the atomization of water.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
