Science Breakthroughs for Youth

For almost 30 years, Science and its Breakthrough of the Year issues have celebrated moments of success in science and engineering and prompted us to ask even more questions. To encourage adolescents to inquire more about science, the Tencent Youth Science Festival—a forum targeting the youth in China and cosponsored by Science/AAAS and Tencent, a China-based tech giant and artificial intelligence (AI) leader—launched in January 2019. A shortlist of breakthrough topics was collated by the News team at Science and provided to Tencent, which leveraged its social, data, and analysis services to gauge the interests of more than 100,000 young users, providing the final 10 breakthrough topics discussed at the forum.
