Innovation Lab Teen Makes Forbes 30 Under 30 List

Last year, local teen Karan Jerath made use of the Innovation Lab to 3D print a model he designed to address the remediation of deep-water oil spills.  We are happy to report that Karan went on to win the Young Scientist Award and a sizeable cash prize at Intel's International Science and Engineering Fair 2015.  Not only that, Karan recently made Forbes magazine's 30 Under 30 List for the Energy Sector.  You can see a photo and description of him on the Forbes website with the model he printed right here in the Lab.  Way to go, Karan!

The Jocelyn H. Lee Innovation Lab is available for you to turn your ideas into realities.  What would you like to make?
