Maanasa Mendu was born in Ohio, US. At an early age, Maanasa saw a big problem with the lack of electricity present in different developing countries, and decided to make a change. At the age of 15, she invented HARVEST, an inexpensive device that could help bring inexpensive electricity to developing countries. This device collects pressure from wind and rain as well as sunlight power with solar cells. She was awarded the title ‘America’s Top Young Scientist’ for her invention.
