    High school kid wins Intel with growing flexible spinal system to straighten

    So amazing that a scoliosis project won top prize. He's now a first year student at Tufts. Smart guy.

    Very cool.....

    He has a nice little rack and pinion setup in the front of his model, and some expansion devices buried in the vertebral bodies....I am guessing this is to show the growth of the spine.

    Also nice that he visited with President, and elevated scoliosis awareness......

    He is a brainstormer thatís for sure! I wish him good luck.
