K-12 Students Look Ahead to a Brighter Future!
The Toshiba/National Science Teachers Association ExploraVision Awards Program, one of the world's largest K -12 science and technology competitions, today announced its first- and second-place national winners for 2007. (Full list of winners attached.) This year's winning student teams imagined amazing advancements in fields such as nanotechnology and polymer creation. They conceptualized future technologies ranging from innovative treatments for diabetes and kidney disease to a possible solution to the worldwide scarcity of drinkable water, a novel treatment for drug addiction, a potentially lifesaving fire extinguishing system, and an ingenious method for harnessing "wasted" energy from automobile use. There was even an idea for a special dental hygiene device that would brush all your teeth at once - and provide a song while doing it!
