Twelve high school students from Pacoima, California demonstrated what happens when opportunity meets passion and determination. Inventing a clever way to combat homelessness by creating collapsing solar-powered tents, these teens were awarded $10,000 grant from the Lemelson-MIT program. This grant will allow them to continue their work and showcase their invention at MIT's Eurekafest in Massachusetts in June 2017.
