From the Ted Talk by Lauren Hodge, Shree Bose + Naomi Shah: Award-winning teenage science in action

Unscramble the Blue Letters

Shree Bose: Hi everyone. I'm Shree Bose. I was the 17-18 year-old age category winner and then the grand prize winner. And I want all of you to iginame a little girl holding a dead blue spinach pnlat. And she's standing in front of you and she's explaining to you that little kids will eat their vbgeteleas if they're different colors. Sounds ridiculous, right. But that was me years ago. And that was my first science fair project. It got a bit more complicated from there. My older brother Panaki Bose sepnt hours of his time explaining atmos to me when I bleray understood basic algebra. My pertans suffered through many more of my science fair projects, including a remote clooenrtld garbage can.

Original Text

Shree Bose: Hi everyone. I'm Shree Bose. I was the 17-18 year-old age category winner and then the grand prize winner. And I want all of you to imagine a little girl holding a dead blue spinach plant. And she's standing in front of you and she's explaining to you that little kids will eat their vegetables if they're different colors. Sounds ridiculous, right. But that was me years ago. And that was my first science fair project. It got a bit more complicated from there. My older brother Panaki Bose spent hours of his time explaining atoms to me when I barely understood basic algebra. My parents suffered through many more of my science fair projects, including a remote controlled garbage can.
