Science experiments devised by teenage students, one from Egypt and two from the United States, will be conducted in space as part of a move by YouTube and Lenovo to inspire young minds, AFP Relax News reports. Winners of a global YouTube Space Lab competition were announced Thursday, with 18-year-old Amr Mohamed of Egypt taking the honor for older students while Dorothy Chen and Sara Ma was deemed top submission in a younger group.
“Humanity’s future relies on moving beyond Earth,” renowned scientist and professor Stephen Hawking said in a release revealing the winners of the competition coordinated by Chinese computer giant Lenovo and Google’s YouTube.
“YouTube Space Lab is a wonderful initiative that helps inspire young minds around the world to take a greater interest in science and the future of space exploration.”
