Reaching for Excellence: Clara Lazen

It is amazing to see that discovery can still be accomplished where the only tools are an imagination and wooden kits in this day age where high-tech computer modeling is so prevalent.  Although the testing to see if this molecule is stable was done with computer modeling.

It is especially amazing since Clara Lazen is only 10 years old.  Kudos to Clara and her teacher, Kenneth Boehr, who recognized that molecule could exist and sent it on to be tested.  Also, kudos to Robert Zoellner for for keeping the inspiration alive and publishing a paper that includes Clara and Kenneth.
