Students from John Burroughs School in St. Louis have returned from a trip to Washington, D.C., where they received an ExploraVision national science award for an invention. The students’ award-winning invention is the “E.colocater Glove,” which theoretically could be used by workers in meat slaughtering, meat packaging, and restaurant industries to detect the deadly e.coli bacteria with the glove turning from blue to white when it comes into contact with E.coli. Lindsey Bauer, Hody Nemes, and Nathan Gusdorf had won the regional competition, then won nationally, and earned a trip to Washington to be honored with a trophy and plaques. The students’ teacher, Mary Harris, says there’s a financial prize, too – each receives $10,000 in scholarship money. More than 1,300 teams from across the country were entered in this year’s competition.
