Peyton Robertson – America’s Top Young Scientist
Peyton Robertson a 5th grader from Fort Lauderdale, Fla has won the title of America’s Top Young Scientist!
Peyton won the top prize of $25,000 and a trip to Costa Rica.
Peyton’s prize winning entry combined a super-absorbent polymer and salt to make a “sandbag” that weighs about 4 pounds compared to the traditional sandbag which weighs about 40 pounds making them much easier to move around. In case you don’t live in an area prone to flooding, sandbags are used to help prevent damage due to rising water.
Peyton, an avid golfer, has also invented a golf ball warmer and retractable training wheels for his sisters’ bicycles.
