With a large scientist and engineering community it isn't surprising that we have crops of upcoming mad scientists.
One of our newly minted mad scientists won second place in the national Intel Science Talent Search in Washington, D.C. $75,000. wow!
The student developed a "tiny motor, less than a quarter inch in diameter, which uses the surface of water to turn its shaft."
"More than 1,800 students entered the prestigious science competition. Its alumni have gone on to win seven Nobel Prizes."
In an era of always trashing education in the United States we do some stuff really, really well.
