Yesterday, Google (s goog) announced the winners of its annual Science Fair, which rewards kids who push beyond the standard baking soda volcano. Out of the 15 projects selected to compete, Google’s panel selected three winners: In the 13-14 bracket, Viney Kumar of Australia created methods to help emergency vehicles better notify cars of their approach. In 15-16, Ann Makosinski of Canada designed a battery-less flashlight. And the 17-18 and Grand Prize winner, Eric Chen of the USA, explored new flu medicines and earned himself $50,000 in scholarship money on top of other prizes. So much for that volcano.
