Hi Kids Who Love Stem!
My name is Hari Bhimaraju, I’m twelve years old, and I’m an upcoming eighth grader in Kennedy Middle School. I live in Cupertino, California. I’m sure each of you will have a different first two sentences. You will definitely have a different name and may have a different age, school, and city as well. But one thing makes us all similar. We all LOVE STEM!!! I am creating this blog so that kids who love STEM all around the world will have a platform to share and learn!
STEM is a part of all our lives and we experience it everywhere. I’ve always been fascinated to explore the world around us and this evolved into my STEM journey!
In 2015, I made a low-cost, animated tool to teach about the Periodic Table for the visually impaired. An app version (The Elementor) is also available in AppStore. In 2016, I created a medicine management system for the elderly and visually impaired that reads out all the medicine details including dosage and expiration dates, provides automatic refills, medicine logs and medicine reminders. I was a first place technology winner in Broadcom MASTERS 2015, a national winner in ProjectCSGirls 2016, have been to the White House, had the honor of meeting President Obama, met the amazing team at Piper and have been having all these wonderful opportunities all because of one reason- I LOVE STEM!
These days, as a kid in STEM, you are practically unstoppable! Try to make your own inventions, solve problems, and keep trying for every opportunity you get. In this blog, feel free to post about your problems, share your ideas, and ask help from other KWLS!
I hope to hear from you soon!
