Problem Statement:
Research suggests that parents are often the last ones to know if their child is undergoing any mental, emotional, or behavioral issues. Further, these issues are manifested in the form of behavioral actions. Unfortunately, we do not have a well-designed, data and AI-powered system to predict and prevent the onset of these issues.

About the Innovation:
Young innovators at DiscoverSTEM innovated a system that connects a child to their parents. It ensures that if a child is going through any mental, emotional, or behavioral issues, parents are the first ones to know about it. This innovation works like the mental, emotional, and behavioral ‘credit score’ of an individual.
It can also predict the onset of any such issues by carefully analyzing received data about observed behavior and frequency of occurrences. This innovation was sent to the Advancing Healthcare Innovation Summit and received worldwide first prize by a distinguished jury panel, which included the Director of the World Health Organization.

DiscoverSTEM founders Mirza Rizwan and Mirza Faizan have made history by becoming the first Indian to win the coveted George Washington Honor Medal from the Freedoms Foundation – USA.

Started in 1949 by former US President Dwight D. Eisenhower, Freedoms Foundation honors exceptional contributions of Americans towards communities in the USA. Generally reserved for the US citizens, the awarding organization made an exception to recognize the stellar research work and its impact of India’s Mr. Rizwan in designing and implementing a unique STEM & Innovation program for American children, thereby revolutionizing the education system in the USA.

Few of the other notable non-US citizens who have received George Washington Honor Medal include Ms. Margaret Thatcher (Former Prime Minister of United Kingdom), Lech Walesa (Former President of Poland and Noble Prize winner) and world-renowned Russian writer Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn. As the latest recipients of this prestigious honor, Mirza brothers join historically acclaimed group of citizens whose work and dedication advance the American ideals, the award letter says.

Some of the distinguished US citizens who have received this award for their stellar contributions in their field are Walt Disney, Astronauts Sally Ride and John Glenn, Capt. Sully Sullenberger, Athletes like Arthur Ashe, George Foreman and Tiger Woods and famous US educator Jaime Escalante.
