While most 13-year-olds spend their free time playing video games or cruising Facebook, one 7th grader in he US was trekking through the woods uncovering a mystery of science. After studying how trees branch in a very specific way, Aidan Dwyer created a solar cell tree that produces 20-50% more power than a uniform array of photovoltaic panels. His impressive results show that using a specific formula for distributing solar cells can drastically improve energy generation. A rare find in the field of technology and a fantastic example of how biomimicry can drastically improve design
