    Young People Solve the World’s Problems at Google Science Fair

    青年人在谷歌科技博覽會上解決了諸多世界問題

    When 16-year-old Celestine Wenardy learned that diabetes was a “silent killer” in her home country of Indonesia, she wanted to find an easy way for people to test their blood sugar levels.

    當十六歲的西萊絲汀·溫納迪了解到糖尿病在她的國家印度尼西亞是一個隱形殺手時,她想為人們找到一個簡單的檢測血糖水平的方法。

    People with diabetes usually take a few drops of their own blood to measure the sugar levels. The Indonesian teenager came up with an idea of using heat on a person’s skin for the test.

    患有糖尿病的人通常需要去幾滴自己的血液來測量血糖水平。這位印度尼西亞的青少年想出了利用人體皮膚的熱量來測量血糖水平的主意。

    She explains how the test works.

    她解釋了這個測驗是如何進行的。

    “So this looks like there is no light passing through, but actually if you covered it up, there is light that passes through your skin.”

    “所以這看起來好像沒有光通過,但是實際上如果你把它蓋上,有光通過你的皮膚。”

    Discussing her work, she told VOA: “I need to make sure it’s absolutely accurate, because people’s health is in your hands.”

    當討論她的產品時,她告訴VOA:“我需要確保它是相當準確的,因為人們的健康握在你的手中。”

    After one failure, the 16-year-old then entered her project in the Google Science Fair. She ended up winning the Virgin Galactic Pioneer Award.

    在經歷了一次失敗之后,接著這位16歲的女孩帶著她的項目參加了谷歌科技博覽會。她最終贏得了維珍銀河先鋒獎。

    Celestine Wenardy is part of 20 teams of students competing this week. The teenagers are from 14 countries. They brought with them new ideas for solving problems in health, the environment and sustainability.

    西萊絲汀·溫納迪是這周參與競賽的20個隊的學生的一員。這些青少年來自14個國家。他們帶來了可解決健康、環境和可持續發展等問題的新主意。

    Daniel Kazantsev from Russia is another student at the science fair. He wanted to help people with a physical disability or those recovering from an injury.

    來自俄羅斯的丹尼爾·卡桑采夫是參與該科技博覽會的另外一名學生。他想幫助有生理缺陷或者從一次損傷中康復的人。

    His project uses sensors to measure arm and hand movements, such as sign language. The sensors turn the measurements into actual speech. His project won the LEGO Education Award.

    他的項目使用傳感器來測量胳膊和手的活動,例如手勢語。這些傳感器將這些測量結果轉變成實際的口語。他的項目贏得了樂高積木獎。

    Students from Saudi Arabia developed an exoskeleton glove for an injured hand. The device helps teach the hand how to move.

    來自沙特阿拉伯的學生為一只受傷的手發明了外骨骼手套。這個儀器可幫助教會這只手如何移動。

    Tuan Dolmen from Turkey wanted to harvest energy produced from the movement of tree branches. He said that energy can then be used by farmers to power devices in the field to measure air quality. The project was awarded the Scientific American Innovator Award.

    來自土耳其的Tuan Dolmen想獲得樹枝的移動中產生的能量。他說那些能量然后能夠被農民利用驅動田間的設備用于測量空氣質量。這個項目被授予了科學美國創新獎。

    “I’m a bit shocked, actually,” he said about the award. “I feel really proud that someone has appreciated my work. It has been a pleasure, and it has been an honor.”

    “實際上我有一點吃驚,”他談論該獎項時說。“某些人能夠很欣賞我的作品我真的感到很自豪。它已經成為一種樂趣并且它也變成了一種榮譽。”

    The winner of the Google Grand Prize, which comes with $50,000, was Fionn Ferreira from Ireland. He created a new method to remove microplastics from the water using magnets.

    贏得了五萬美元的獎金的谷歌大獎得主是來自愛爾蘭的菲奧恩·費雷拉。他創造了一種新的方法可將利用磁鐵從水中去除微塑料。

    “I live in the middle of nowhere, so I had to build everything myself. If I wanted to test my things, I’d have to build a spectrometer or I’d have to build a microscope… It was enjoyable to do everything from my very limited resources from where I live.”

    “我住在偏遠的地方,所以我必須靠自己建立所有的東西。如果我想檢測我的東西,我將必須建一個分光計或者我將必須建一臺顯微鏡……在我居住的地方利用非常有限的資源去做每一件事情都是很開心的。”

    The judges commented that Ferreira’s project represented the spirit of exploration.

    評委們評論道費雷拉的項目展現了探索精神。
