The Cancer-Test Kid

Something’s are worth sharing. Like a 15-year old teenager who invented an inexpensive but accurate diagnosis strip that can detect diseases in its early stages at John Hopkins University.

When most 15-year olds had their noses glued to GTA, Skyrim (ok, I love Skyrim) and World of Warcraft (is this even still popular?), Jack Andraka was toiling away at John Hopkins University to create a better and more affordable cancer-detecting test. This young protégé may only be starting out, but imagine the things he could accomplish in the next few years. Awesome and inspiring. I wish I had been more interested in Science when I was in secondary school, but clearly, I had a passion for chocolates, books and words.
