Junior Amy Dunphy’s project, titled “Poison Oak: Neutralized,” received a 2016 Popular Mechanics Youth Breakthrough Award. The awards celebrate “research, innovators, scientists and students who’ve made the world a little better this year.”
Dunphy conceived of her project – a balm that neutralizes the allergen in poison oak and poison ivy – after getting a rash from contact with poison oak. Read a bit about her work on Popular Mechanics’ website! http://www.popularmechanics.com/technology/a22404/youth-breakthrough-awards/
