A Child Studies A Tree

Advertisement

A junior High School kid has invented a way of collecting sunlight for solar power that mimics the way leaves on trees do it!

Aiden Dwyer studied the pattern of the branches and discovered that they all follow a Fibonacci formula! This type of innovation is called Biomimicry -- looking to nature's examples for the most efficient way to accomplish a task.

Instead of thinking of solar panels as large flat things that must be installed on a roof, he had the idea to make a tree shaped collection of smaller panels, following the Fibonacci formula for an oak tree.

His invention may just liberate solar technology completely, bringing it down from the roof and into any kind of urban space, making solar power modular and portable.

Hoorah for the young scientist!
