Google Science Fair Grand Prize Winner in Galápagos

Seventeen-year-old Brittany Wenger designed an application that helps accurately diagnose breast cancer through a minimally invasive procedure. Her program filters massive amounts of data to detect complex patterns, and it turned one of the least precise diagnostic tools available to doctors into one that’s 99% accurate. For her feat of science she was awarded, among other prizes, a Galápagos expedition aboard National Geographic Endeavour, where she shot this video.
