Florida Atlantic University High School student Hannah Herbst participated in President Barack Obama’s sixth annual White House Science Fair on Wednesday, April 13 at 1 p.m.

Herbst, 15, beat out nine other finalists to win the 2015 Discovery Education 3M Young Scientist Challenge in October 2015. With help from a 3M scientist, Herbst created an ocean energy prototype that aims to provide a stable power source to developing countries by using untapped energy from ocean currents.

Herbst joined more than 100 top science, technology, engineering, and math students from across the country that are tackling the country’s biggest challenges at the nation’s capital.
