This is amazing, it will save many lives!


A 14-year-old Pennsylvania girl has come up with an innovative way to get rid of blind spots before she can even legally get behind the wheel.

Alaina Gassler, from West Grove, presented her project — called ‘Improving Automobile Safety by Removing Blind Spots’ — during this year’s Society for Science and Public’s Broadcom MASTERS (Math, Applied Science, Technology and Engineering for Rising Stars).

Gassler won the Samueli Foundation Prize for her creativity — and a hefty $25,000 check. More than $100,000 was given out to 30 finalists at the award ceremony.
