Jack Andraka narrates episode of "El Poder de los Centennials" from Colombia






I’ll share a series episode for a Colombian TV film “El Poder de los Centennials” from BanColombia, in which Stanford scientist Jack Andraka appears.  It means “The Power of the Centennial Generation”. It is directed by Luis Ara.

The byline ?Hay sufficiente acceso a la salud” asks “sufficient health care?”

Jack has been finishing a project in Sierra Leone this summer regarding drug resistant tuberculosis, and will finish a Master’s in Electrical Engineering project this academic year at Stanford.  Not sure of the details – it has to do with tagging microorganism or contamination in water in developing countries, I think.  I had not heard he had worked in Colombia.  

This is sort of a "the young people will win" film (a phrase from David Hogg).
