My Breakthrough Junior Challenge Entry: Carbon Sequestration, Carbon Capture, and their Roles in Climate Change

This year I am competing in the Breakthrough Junior Challenge! Competitors were asked to submit a 3:00min (max) video explaining a scientific process in physics, mathematics, life sciences, or (this year only) Covid19. I wanted to incorporate my environmental interests and so I chose to explain the importance of carbon sequestration and the other processes that stem from it.

Thousands of competitors all over the world have submitted amazing entries in the hopes of walking away with the single grand prize of $250,000 college scholarship, $50,000 for a teacher who inspired the competitor, and a $100,000 valued science lab for the competitor’s school. I’ve been blown away by all of the entries submitted and I’m grateful for the skills I learned from making this video, many many hours went into writing, recording, and learning how to edit all of the media!

It would mean a lot to me if you could spare 2:58 minutes of your day to watch it!

  1. Simple and succinct, Sofia’s video summarizes the role of the plant kingdom in sequestering CO2. She succeeds in striking a chord and in the heart of viewers, urging protection of forests, although without broaching the delicate subject of the culprits of forest destruction: meat consumption, cocaine and heroine use, packaging and shipping, as well as mining and lumbering. I would like to see her diplomacy in addressing those problems.
