Anna Du attends only 7th grade in Massachusetts Elementary School and can already enjoy great success. He has succeeded in constructing a robot that identifies the microplate of the sea. They pose a problem not only to marine animals, but also to the whole ecosystem. Scientists create a warning finger and say that by 2050 more fish will fish in the sea than fish, which is really disturbing.
This is one of the reasons why Anna decided not only to look at everything. She noticed that it was extremely difficult to remove the particular microplasma that was deposited on the ocean floor. So he created a robot that's right for this activity. The robot resembles a small vehicle from PVC pipes and fishing weights moving at sea and is able to identify microplastics using infrared radiation.
How can a 12-year-old girl have something to do? She got all the necessary knowledge at her local library and watched her video lessons on YouTube. But she had been interested in science since childhood, and her parents were involved in various events when Anna was only five years old.
Many experts have been handed over to a girl, including Casey Machao of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute. For Smitssonian, she said that although the device seems simple, Anna deserves recognition. She created a functional prototype to help solve the serious problem of humanity.

Casey Machao is dedicated to collecting and evaluating data from the polar regions, and is pleased that Anna was inspired by one of her robotics to create her prototype. Her robot even participated in the Broadcom Masters competition, and Anna put them in the idea of 30 top actors.
The competition was attended by many skilled people, and the ideas were appreciated by the best industry engineers and scientists. Although Anna did not leave the first prize, she has no head and hopes to ever become an engineer to help shape things that make the world a little better.
