Ishan Bagai is a high school student at Brophy College Preparatory in Phoenix, Arizona. Ishan found a passion for working to protect the environment and mitigate the negative effects of climate change. He is very interested in novel technology and wants to leverage technology to help fight climate change. This led to him creating a mobile app called LetsRideKids to help increase the use of carpooling by families for their children's transportation needs to school and extracurricular activities. By increasing carpooling, single-rider cars are taken off the road, leading to lower carbon emissions and less pollution. Ishan is working with local Phoenix schools to incorporate the LetsRideKids app and hopes to expand the app nationally.
