    More efficient solar technology crystals, and other incredible scientific research from high school scientists

    One high school student is working hard to understand a crystal that could greatly reduce the cost of solar technology like solar panels.

    Current solar cells are made from silicon, which requires a high purity to be efficient. This makes solar technology more expensive. Skyler Jones, from Ossining, New York, studied perovskite crystals, a different semiconductor material for solar...

    Learning about locomotion with cockroach-like robots

    Not every high school student acknowledges the brilliance of a cockroach. Evains Francois, a junior at Baltimore Polytechnic Academy, studies roaches and designs robots based on their movements.

    Evains is fully immersed in science research, inspired, in part, by articles he read through the Science News in High Schools program. When Evains was a high school sophomore, he loved...
