Young Inventors Assemble in Houston - HOUSTON (KTRK)
There are students from 52 countries and 41 states in town this weekend for what we'll call a science fair for the 21st century. And these prodigies seem to have an amazing take on how to solve some of the pressing energy needs we'll have long into the future.
Ryan Alexander says he built a better windmill. His has twice the blades for twice the power, and uses less land than those that exist today.
Austin Phillips from Florida developed a prototype saltwater engine. "It can go faster and is more powerful when you have an increased amount of salinity," Phillips said.
Maritza Lagunas has a project that goes well beyond my understanding. But it sounds cool.
Science Fair Attracts Students from All Over the World
Houston is host to the first annual International Science Fair aimed at promoting awareness in sustainable energy. The competition is geared to students in grades 9 through 12 all over the world. Pat Hernandez has more. The International Sustainable World Project Olympiad drew nearly a thousand entries from 52- countries in the areas of energy environment and engineering. The projects are being judged by officials from area universities including the University of Houston, Texas and Rice. Winners will not only receive a medal for their effort, but a scholarship from the universities. It is important that the best young minds are recognized for their efforts to keep the world a livable place. Pat Hernandez. KUHF, Houston Public Radio News.
