"Day 3: Still just a potato."

Mary Masterman, 17, from Oklahoma just won the Intel science fair's top prize, a $100,000 scholarship. For her science fair project, she built a Littrow spectrograph at home for under $1000, to do Raman spectroscopy of household solvents. She's already presented a poster at an American Astronomical Society meeting.

Holy, crap...
