    These 13 Society alumni are Nobel Prize Laureates

    Last week, we found out that Kip Thorne, a Science Talent Search alum, had won the Nobel Prize in Physics for his observation of gravitational waves. Thorne isn't the only Society alumni who was named a Nobel Laureate. All thirteen of these Nobel Laureates were Science Talent Search alumni, which is a pretty impressive track record for a competition.

  • Helping MS patients get a grip on things

    PHOENIX, Ariz. — Hundreds of thousands of people in the United States alone suffer from multiple sclerosis. This nervous system disease gradually leads to widespread paralysis. But in most cases, MS patients first lose the ability to open their hands. In time they lose the ability to grip common household items. Now, a teen has invented a device that helps slow the development of this “...

  • Teen offers technology that could help brain surgeons

    PHOENIX, Ariz. — There’s an old saying: Practice makes perfect. People usually think of this adage in relation to simple repetitive actions like throwing a football. Now, a teen has come up with a way to let brain surgeons practice intricate operations where the stakes are much higher.

    There’s no doubt that surgery can, in general, be “practiced.” The more operations that doctors perform...

  • Common plant could help fight Zika virus

    PHOENIX, Ariz. — Substances in a common plant can kill larvae of the mosquito that helps spread the viruses that cause Zika, chikungunya and dengue fever. That's the discovery of a teen from the Philippines. His research may help public health officials develop a way to slow the spread of those deadly diseases. It also may give homeowners hints about how to home-brew their own mosquito-killing...

    Teen gymnast finds how best to keep her grip

    PHOENIX, Ariz. — When gymnasts get ready to swing on the uneven or parallel bars, they will usually dust their hands with chalk. The chalk dries their hands and helps prevent slipping. But there’s more than one type of chalk available. Which is best for this use? Krystle Imamura, 18, decided to find out. And when it comes to getting a good grip, she found, liquid chalk outperforms the others...
