Yashaswini Makaram, 17, of Northborough, MA, created a new cell phone security tool that uses unique arm and hand movements to identify the mobile device user.
Inspired by some of the 1.5 million Mayo Clinic patients around the world, three girls, represented by Lydia Mindermann, 13, and Andrea Richard Kasson, 14, of Kason, Minnesota, developed an international award-winning app to help cancer patients find things to do in free time between treatments.
One team developed an app to help dislexic students do math, one team developed an app to support their LBGTQ peers, and one 15-year-old girl developed a wearable device to help remind stroke patients to do their rehabilitative exercises.
