    she blinded me with science

    When I was in tenth grade I'm pretty sure I spent most of my free time watching movies and reading fanfic. And here Ann Makosinski is inventing a new type of flashlight and advancing to the finals of the Google Science Fair. I feel lazy.

  2. Google Science Fair 2013 Finalists Announced, Make Us Feel Tragically Unaccomplished

    Prepare to also feel incredibly old.

    First started in 2011, the Google Science Fair seeks to encourage young students around the world by offering them the opportunity to develop science projects and share their findings online. Today they announced this year's finalists, whose ideas are more than a little impressive. Remember: These kids are all in middle and high school. When I was in high school, my biggest accomplishment was being the drum major of the marching band. They're already so much cooler than I'm ever going to be.

  4. Google Science Fair Winner Brittany Wenger Made a Neural Network That Can Diagnose Breast Cancer

    This Exists... Because of A Lady

    Looking back on high school, I'm often surprised that I graduated with even a modicum of science literacy -- let's just say that my projects usually seemed a bit rushed, which is to say they were entirely completed the night before the due date. But for the teens who competed in this year's Google Science Fair, an annual competition that invites teenagers from around the world to digitally submit their science projects, I think it's safe to say that science is a blessing and an opportunity, and not a curse. Among this year's amazing contestants, grand prize winner Brittany Wenger, a 17-year-old girl from Florida, seems to be stealing the show -- and with her amazing project, a neural network that can diagnose breast cancer with 99.11% accuracy, can you really blame her?
