LDS Girl's Design Wins Intel Award

CAMERON PARK, CALIFORNIA -- The design of a 12-year-old LDS girl for a machine to detect and treat cancer won the Regional Intel Corp., "Invention of the Future" contest, winning her a laptop computer and the right to compete for the national award, held March 8-12 in San Jose, California. Kaylie Clark's machine would scan a patient's body, detecting a missing DNA sequence, and then destroying the cancerous cells.

While the machine isn't possible with today's technology, judges at the regional competition chose Kaylie's idea from among those submitted, based on its creativity, clear presentation. eventual feasibility as a product and the idea's uniqueness.

Kaylie learned about the contest from her language arts teacher, who had many of her students submit the 250-word description of their ideas required by the contest. Kaylie used concepts she learned in her science class to develop the idea.

But, while Kaylie is happy at winning the prize, she isn't planning a career in biotechnology. Instead, she wants to study music, following her older brother and sister to study at BYU.
