Failing Your Way to Success: Building Your Toolbox for Life Through Science Fairs

Paige Brocidiacono, Spark Climate Solutions

Paige Brocidiacono is a climate field builder and entrepreneur who got her start in science fairs. In 2016, she won first place in Global Good at the Intel (now Regeneron) Science Talent Search with her research developing solutions to nutrient pollution causing harmful algal blooms in her community of Bangor, Maine. She studied materials science at Stanford and started a weather company using low-cost, controllable weather balloons to improve forecast accuracy by unlocking new data sources. She now works as a climate field builder accelerating the emerging methane removal field with Spark Climate Solutions, a nonprofit. She continues to be involved in the science fair community, serving as a judge and mentor for several high school students.
