Google’s Science Fair votes for the next scientist’s project

Wow, I am just blown away by the submissions to Google’s Science fair.  It’s for youth 13 and 18 to come up with their own science or engineering project and share their findings.  I was particularly moved by our Canadian talking about filtering oil sand tailings using bacterial and the Russian about a more efficient ultrasonic fuel injector.

Canada’s Hayley Todesco (who is 17 I might add) says “I found I could break down these acids to the point where I could probably reduce the detoxification of these tailings ponds from centuries to decades”.

You should really have a look and vote.

Burger King buys Tim Hortons

Haha, “Who approached who? Were the talks over Timbits or a Whopper?”
