engineering careers  Breakthrough Junior Challenge – Explaining Relativity using a pick-up truck and Usain Bolt

Hillary Diane Andales won last years Breakthrough Junior Challenge for her must-watch video explaining the theory of relativity.

The core concept of relativity is interesting in that it shatters the singularity in perspective that we have become accustomed to. While German physicist Albert Einstein relied on complex equations to describe his theory of relativity, 18-year-old Hillary Diane was able to simplify the concept with a pick-up truck, a few cell phones, and Usain Bolt.

The annual competition calls on teenagers globally to submit videos that are not longer than three minutes which can simplify big ideas.

Andales took home the grand prize of $250,000 in scholarship money.
