In this Education on Air keynote Brittany Wenger shares her story. Growing up, Brittany was surrounded by family members and teachers that created an environment that fostered and nurtured her natural curiosity. She shows us what can happen when a teenager is encouraged to follow her passion and is given the tools to seek answers to even the world's toughest problems.
Brittany is a student at Duke University. In 2012 she was the winner of the Google Science Fair for her project "Cloud4Cancer," in which she used artificial intelligence to create a cloud-based system to help doctors diagnose breast cancer and leukemia.
