Meteorites streak through the sky, dropping a mysterious dust. Adults fall unconscious worldwide. To rescue them, kids must gather dirt from Mars. Who says learning science and engineering can’t be fun? Not NASA engineers! They’ve teamed up with engineering students and gamers to create Falling Dust, a free, alternative-reality game that lets multiple players apply real-world skills to save humanity.
You don’t have to be an engineer to think like one and design things to help people. Just ask Lily Born. At age 9, she invented a no-spill cup for her grandfather, whose Parkinson’s disease make his hands tremble. Two years later, the Kangaroo Cup is now in production – and Lily, 11, was honored at the White House.
