Jack Andraka: A promising test for pancreatic cancer ... from a teenager

Jack Andraka: A promising test for pancreatic cancer ... from a teenager

JACK ANDRAKA was just a fifteen year old Maryland high school sophomore when he invented an inexpensive early detection test for pancreatic, ovarian, and lung cancers. Now, at seventeen, Jack’s groundbreaking results have earned him international recognition, most notably a 2014 Jefferson Award, the nation’s most prestigious public service award, 1st place winner in the 2014 Siemens We Can Change the World Challenge, the 2012 Intel ISEF Gordon Moore Award, the 2012 Smithsonian American Ingenuity Youth Award, a spot on Advocate Magazine’s 2014 40 under 40 list, a fellowship as a National Geographic Explorer, and he’s also the 2014 State of Maryland winner of the Stockholm Water Prize.

In addition, Jack Andraka was First Lady Michelle Obama’s personal guest at the 2013 State of the Union Address. He speaks to audiences of youths and adults all across the globe about his personal story, research, and his ideas for STEM education reform. He has been featured in several documentaries including Morgan Spurlock’s Sundance Film Festival entry, “You Don’t Know Jack,” Linda Peters’ award winning film, “Just Jack,” as well as ABC World News with Diane Sawyer, CNN, BBC, Fox, and radio, newspaper, and magazine articles around the world. His young adult memoir, BREAKTHROUGH: HOW ONE TEEN INNOVATOR IS CHANGING THE WORLD is available in bookstores.

Using Technology as a Catalyst for Change:  The Power of the Internet

Jack will illuminate the role of how we use technology such as the internet and social media to engage with ideas and people in novel ways never before possible. He will also discuss how this abundance of information enables innovation in the 21st century. 

Stem Education:  Hacking your STEM Education

Jack will talk about the current state of STEM education as well as what areas we can improve upon, particularly with more hands-on experiences and learning science in context. This talk illuminates these key points along with several personal anecdotes of Jack's experiences with our current education system. 

 "Currently we're employing a bulimic education system where we try to cram as much information down a kid's throat as possible to have them regurgitate it on some standardized test and then instantly forget the information. You learn science by doing, not from a textbook."

Future of Medicine:  Exponential Medicine

Jack will talk about the impact of emerging trends on the field of medicine, in particular empowering the patient with e-patient technologies, personalized medicine, quantified self, and the development of a new generation of diagnostics and therapies. 

 "Medicine is becoming an information technology, where you can program your health and predict disease before it even happens."
