Intel Science Talent Search finalists show off their work

I can remember only two science projects from my teenage years. One was a tennis ball launcher made of rubber tubing and plywood. The other was a bottle rocket with a cardboard nose. I think my dad built both of them.
I didn’t see anything like those gadgets at Sunday’s Intel Science Talent Search project exhibition in Washington, D.C. The 17- and 18-year-old finalists aren’t gluing together plastic and cardboard, and they sure aren’t getting their fathers to do their projects for them.
