I’m fifteen, and still have a hard time remembering my locker combination some Monday mornings. Jack Adracka, though, has created a test to help detect pancreatic cancer cells. Jack’s test searches for proteins that are specific to those cancer cells. Driven by the death of family due to pancreatic cancer, his tests becomes the fastest, most advanced, and reliable. By collaborating with professors for Hopkins, Jack was able to surpass all other cancer tests. Jack Adracka is far from just some kid.

Remember Home Alone? Well, 13 year old Laurence Rook found a way to avoid that situation in the first place, even if you don’t always have a child at home to keep out the burglars. Laurence developed a system that tricks criminals into thinking you’re home, whether you’re halfway across the world or just down the street. See, this system is actually a doorbell that is linked to the home owner’s cellphone. Whenever the door bell goes off without somebody answering, the home owner is called and is able to speak to those at the door, but sounding as though they are answering from inside. Then, when the doorbell is tested to see if you’re home? The crook won’t know any different Laurence is far from being just some kid.
