Inventive High Schoolers

An omni-directional wheelchair, an anti-mine robot and a reusable enzymatic biodiesel unit are just a few of the gizmos being unveiled this week by high school students from around the country.

The students are part of the Lemelson-MIT "Inventeams" project which gives the teams up to $10,000 to complete their prototype gadgets.

They're in Cambridge this week to show off their work and Matt Largey went to check out some of the inventions.
