Vape Nation | Megan Alam | TEDxYouth@TheWoodlands

vor 2 Jahren

Everyone knows that smoking is bad for you, but what about e-cigarettes? Megan Alam presents her research exposing the dangers of vaping.

Megan Alam is in the Class of 2017 at The Academy of Science and Technology at The Woodlands College Park High School. She is particularly interested in the medical field including research, education and nutrition. Megan recently won Grand Award at the Science and Engineering Fair at Houston (SEFH), Bronze Award at the International Sustainable World Project Olympiad in Energy, Engineering and Environment (I-SWEEEP), and was a finalist at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) in Translational Medical Science. Megan has volunteered in her local hospital’s ER, completed a medical mentorship in Neurology/Neurosurgery, and spent the past summer conducting research at the University of Texas, M.D. Anderson Cancer Center at the Medical Center in Houston.

In scouting since elementary school, Megan is currently an Ambassador and was just awarded her Gold, the highest achievement in Girl Scouts of the USA. An active member of her high school community, Megan was selected as a trumpet Section Leader in marching band for the past two years, is active in National Honor Society and DECA, and is a science fair judge as well as panelist who has been invited to present her research to younger students and local community leaders. She plans on pursuing a Biology degree and, ultimately, giving back through Doctors Without Borders.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
