Apparently I’m feeling all science-y today. This story just makes me so happy I had to spread it around (although lots of other pubs have already done a pretty good job).
From the New York Times:
Shree Bose, age 17, from Fort Worth, Tex., won the grand prize for developing a way to improve ovarian cancer treatment for patients who have developed a resistance to chemotherapy. Naomi Shah, 16, from Portland, Ore., found ways to improve indoor air quality and decrease people’s reliance on asthma medications. And Lauren Hodge, 14, from Dallastown, Pa., researched the effects of different marinades on potential carcinogens in grilled chicken.
Right there is some pretty convincing evidence that boys are not naturally better at science than girls! And I adore how excited they look with their Lego trophies.
