'Mouth Magician' brings grins to winners' faces

Abstract:
What began as no idea for a science project has turned into a bright idea that could make four Granite District sixth-graders $10,000 richer. The Mouth Magician would be a tooth tray containing tiny plaque-attacking "nanobots." A user would fill the trays with a fluoride gel, mouthwash, bleach and anti-bacterial agents. Nanobots would spread the gel on the teeth, rinse them and return to an airtight area on the appliance.
