Winners of 1st Google Science Fair include a project on Indoor Air

Well, the winners of the first Google sponsored science fair have been announced” Lauren Hodge in the 13-14 year old group, Naomi Shah in the 15-16 year old group and Shree Bose, in the 17-18 age group.  

Time Magazine pointed out (see Sorry, Guys: Girls Sweep Googles First Ever Science Fair – Techland – TIME.com.) that all three winners are female, which is nice to see.  I thought I might add that it is interesting that one of the winners was focused on indoor air. Shah focused on testing whether improving indoor air quality could reduce the need to asthma medications.  Now if only we could get her to look at microbial diversity too …

Anyway, congrats to the winners …
