“Today’s inventors are different, we have more
information, technology and resources than ever
before,” noted 12th-grade Veronica Lewis, inventor
of NOMAD (Navigational Ocean Mammal
Assistance Drone), which prevents marine mammal beachings. “A hundred years ago it was all about creating the first . . . the first lightbulb, the first car, the first telegraph. For me, inventing can also be about converging proven technologies in a new way to solve big problems.”
Veronica has won multiple awards for her inventing both regionally (the Young Inventor’s Program) and as a National first place winner at the National Invention Convention. Veronica was deeply involved in First Robotics as her Team Captain, winning many regional awards and State level competitions. Veronica Lewis is a 12th grader at iNACA and Georgetown High School.
