The story of three impressive high school science projects. Can you guess which student won $250,000 in the #RegeneronSTS? Applications open June 1: http://bit.ly/2HkLXT1 This video was sponsored by Regeneron. The Science Talent Search was founded and produced by the Society for Science and the Public.

Huge thanks to the students: Ronak Roy, Ana Humphrey, and Anjali Chadha. It was great getting to meet all of you and learn about your original scientific research.

Special thanks to Assistant Professor Konstantin Batygin for discussing Ana's research and Planet 9 with me. More is coming on the Planet 9 front.

Ronak came up with a new design for the phoropter, the device used to determine eye-glass prescriptions. It's basically been unchanged for 200 years. Using a liquid lens, he miniaturized the device and wrote an algorithm to determine your prescription.

Ana used math and physics to search for hidden exoplanets. There are a number of reasons why the transit method and Kepler telescope may have missed them: they're too small, too inclined, or take too long to orbit and so were not seen. By considering which planetary systems have additional space for more planets, Ana came up with 560 locations where we may look again for planets in future.

Anjali developed an internet enabled device for measuring arsenic concentrations in drinking water. The device performs several chemical reactions to release the arsenic into a measurable state. It then reacts the arsenic with a test strip to produce a color output. This color is sampled by a camera and processed to determine the concentration of arsenic in the water sample. This has significant potential applications around the world helping reduce exposure to arsenic and potentially other contaminants.

Hello.., I am proud Indian....😉😂

the humprhey girl's math was so rudimentary tho lmfao, but still to find a new way to make use of it, great job!

Thankyou for making me stupid

You need wired earphone with remote wich hard to be found if u use apple product XD

Ronak, you're a gem dear. Love and best wishes to you from Nepal.

The thing is that i can’t help myself but to get jealous of intelligent people 😂

Ok, great, so let's give the money to someone who invented something that while is interesting and clever is practically useless for helping those here on our planet today. Eyesight and water purity are two critical things required for basic quality of life and survival, put the money where it can best help people.

I knew the second person is the winner, she's a genius eventhough I don't understand a single thing she said lol
Solum Cheda
Love the video

I hope the eyeglass kid got a patent

oh my god

i'd buy myself that new mazda miata for 27,000.00 with that prize money! don't need 1st play to get my miata!

Wow I feel so dumb it’s amazing how some people’s brains work

"Flat" Earth (under dome/firmament surrounded by waters) is the truth.
Campean Calin
it takes like a minute and a half in the video to figure out who the winner is :))

How To Make Colour With Holes $250,000 for a High School Science 2 days ago   02:22

Scientists are being inspired by nature to design the next generation of security devices. Arrays of nanoscale holes create beautiful reflected colours that are almost impossible to forge. This video was supported by TechNyou - check out their series on logical fallacies: http://bit.ly/WBsD31

Soon these nanoscale security devices could replace holograms. They are many times more reflective than holograms, and although the structures are smaller scale, they are lower aspect ratio and therefore easy to manufacture in bulk.

The electron wiggle simulation is from PhET, the best physics simulations ever: http://phet.colorado.edu

Special thanks to Thomas from Copenhagen who showed me around the city including the science museum where he assisted with the soap bubble demonstration.
