Five teens from a Philadelphia-Area high school recently developed an automotive breakthrough. In an auto-shop course, the students created an engine which goes from 0 to 60 MPH in four seconds, and can get up to 50 miles to the gallon. What’s the big deal? The engine runs on soybean oil!
This story has been noticebly absent from the news, either because alternative fuel news is not exactly “above-the fold” worthy. If anything however, this story reaffirms the simple truth that young people are just as, if not more innovative, creative, and imaginative. If five teenagers in an auto-class can change the entire automotive industry, imagine what a group of strategically selected imaginative college students can do? BrainReactions is in the business of finding out.
