10 Amazing Winning Science Fair Projects

2

Sure there are kids that don't take the science fair seriously and end up feeding Mountain Dew to a plant for 30 days to see what happens (yay science!), but there are also kids that go well above and beyond. Here are 10 that won with extremely brainy projects that have real world applications. For example, 16-year old Mahdavi Gavini acheived a medical breakthrough while researching cystic fibrosis.

This student at the Mississippi Institute of Mathematics and Science turned to traditional Ayurvedic medicine to find a way to defeat these deadly bacteria. Eventually she isolated a specific molecule in a tropical plant extract that inhibited its growth by preventing the transcription of vital genes. Rather than patenting her discovery, she made the information readily available and plans to seek many more alternative cures in the future.

Her name is "Madhavi Gavini" and not "Mahdavi Gavini"

Its good to hear about great things kids in this country are doing. The doom and gloom in the media makes ones feel as if there is no hope for mankind. This kind of an article just reminds us that there are dedicated, smart students working hard for the advancement of sciences and society.

how did some of these kids do their research? i mean some of it sounds like they'd need some serious lab equipment. and huzzah to the kid killing the mosquitos without pesticides!

I loved being in science fairs when I was younger, and I remember the kids that had these mind blowing projects. It is amazing to think how accomplished and learned a 16 year old can be.
