Competition Finalist Challenges Drowsiness on the Road

Katherine Wu, a finalist in the 2014 Discovery Education 3M Young Scientists Challenge has a mission that’s a bit bewildering given her age: combat drowsy driving. According to the Huffington Post, the 14 year old invented a tiny computer worn on a bluetooth headset that tracks changes in drivers' bodies via EEG and sends audio-visual alerts if drowsiness is detected. With two years until she can legally obtain her drivers license, Wu is making impressive headway in creating safer roads for herself and others.
