13-Year Old Replicates Fibonacci Sequence to Harness Solar Power

Aidan, replicated the Fibonacci Sequency in trees to invent a new way of harnessing solar energy!

The future of our planet lies in the hands of our children and when a 13-year old boy, Aidan Dwyer, uncovers the mystery of how trees get enough of sunlight in a crowded forest and applies it to solar energy you know that all is not lost.

On a trek through the forest Aidan, from Long Island, New York, pondered on how all the leaves get enough of sunlight and figured out that trees spiral up using the Fibonacci sequence.

The fractal nature of trees allows each leaf to get sunlight and he pondered on why we don’t use the Fibonacci sequence in the placement of solar panels for us to harness energy from the sun.

So he came up with his little invention to generate the maximum amount of energy using the fractal principals of nature. Aidan explained, “My design is like a tree, but instead of having leaves it has solar panels at the ends (of the branches).”

Hope this video inspires more parents to let their children wander through forests and study nature!

It's so difficult trying to write an about oneself, you want to talk about who you are and what you do. But do those things really define you? I would like to let you know I put this website together, with the help of the others. But I want to tell you i'm special, cause i'm good with all the technical.But none of this would be possible without our writers and you the readers. All our hands come together, to make our world a little better. <3 Clyde
