World's Largest Student Science and Technology Competition Announces its 20th Anniversary National Winners

A team of 4-6th grade students from Fairmont Private School in Anaheim,
CA, won First Place for an idea that could benefit people suffering
from hearing loss caused by nerve damage, appropriately called Hearing
the World’s Silent Side. The treatment would attach microscopic
nanofibers to the auditory nerve, allowing sound to reach the brain by
passing over the nerve rather than through the damaged portion.
