Teen Innovators tells the stories of discovery and the inventions of nine young students.

For example, twelve-year-old Gitanjali Rao, appalled by the tragedy in Flint, Michigan, found a cheaper, more effective way to test for lead in drinking water. Four undocumented teenagers from an underfunded high school in Phoenix built an underwater robot from spare and found parts. Substituting hard work and creative thinking for money and expensive equipment, they won a national robotics competition, beating a well-funded team from MIT. At fifteen, William Kamkwamba used materials from junkyards near his home in Malawai to build a windmill to generate electricity and pump water for his village.

While each profile tells a different story, the reader soon sees the common threads of determination and ingenuity.

Foreword. Glossary. Source notes. Selected bibliography. Suggestions for further information. Index. Full-color photographs and illustrations.
