An important letter
Principal writes the tooth fairy and explains a missing tooth
A first grader at Gillett Elementary School in Wisconsin, lost a tooth on the playground. Worried that the tooth fairy would pass him by, he went to Principal Curt Angeli. Principal Angeli realized the importance of the situation, grabbed some official school letterhead and wrote to the tooth fairy explaining the predicament, actually vouching for the boy and the gap in his front teeth. Principal Angeli told FOX TV , “I figured I would make it look as official as possible, in case the Tooth Fairy was suspicious.” Happily, the boy received a new $1.00 bill from the tooth fairy! (It’s interesting that the principal has the word “angel” in his last name.)
14 year-old solves the problem of car blind spots
Alaina Glasser from West Grove, Pennsylvania designed a way to eliminate blind spots caused by the pillar that supports the windshield. Using a webcam, a projector and reflective material, the fourteen year old figured out that you can display the images that are behind the pillar, right onto the pillar. The design won Alaina the $25,000 Samueli Foundation Prize for her design. Alaina told CNN, “When I did research, I found out that there are more than 840,000 blind spot related car accidents per year just in the US, which made this project significantly more important to me”.
