Olivia Smith Donovan

Olivia Smith Donovan, Bio-Inspired Designs Winner

How did you come up with your entry?
I like launching helicopter seeds from maple trees and making paper ones.  I got the idea to drop a person or food-drop package using a seed umbrella-propeller design.  It could drop faster than a parachute and could be cheaper.

Hobby: playing the trumpet

Advice to kids entering next year’s challenge?
Think of something that fits and is a big issue.

My award-winning idea: I would like to use helicopter seeds (maple tree seeds) to safely and quickly drop emergency parcels and people from great heights.

(Olivia will visit the University of California at Merced and the San Diego Zoo)
