High School Student Wins Top Prize for Ocean Device

Aaron Goldin, whom we posted about here has won top prize in the Siemens-Westinghouse high school science competition for a wave energy device as reported in this story at MSNBC. Unfortunately, the $100,000 prize will go to Mr. Goldin's college. Too bad that it can't be used to actually develop Goldin's device because with the current state of affairs in wave energy development, the project may never be built. Of course, $100,000 isn't much or nearly enough - but quite frankly, it's more than what's available to any US wave energy developer at this time.
