Wow - amazing!

Other than a little excitement in her voice from time to time - if you just listened to her you would never guess she was a young girl!
That is, she sounds like someone who has just finished a degree in university!

Carolyn Jons, from Eden Prairie High School in Eden Prairie, Minn., received second place for her innovative packaging method that inhibits mold growth and helps keep food fresh longer.

Anin Sayana from Bellarmine College Preparatory in Cupertino, Calif., received third place for his innovation that selectively targets chemotherapy-resistant cancer stem cells.

Anishaa Sivakumar from Franklin Regional High School in Murrysville, Pa., received fourth place for her innovation that would help treat patients suffering from macular degeneration.


Kudos to the finalists as well. All of these innovations are fantastic.

Are all those inventions/discoveries done by similarly aged people?!? If so, that's crazy!

third place should have been second place, or maybe first. in fact second should have been 4th.

Feminism will be outlawed. Mostly because it's a backwards idiotic viewpoint that doesn't serve any real progressive purpose.

Very impressive, but it's a huge shame that things like this (and there have been several similar inventions) never actually get implemented.
