Wyoming teen who built reactor ousted from science fair on technicality

A Wyoming high school senior who built a nuclear reactor was disqualified from the International Science and Engineering Fair this month on a technicality.
It seems that 18-year-old Conrad Farnsworth of Newcastle had competed in too many science fairs.



According to the Casper Star-Tribune (Wyoming teen who built fusion reactor disqualified from science fair on technicality), the infraction was reported by the former director of the Wyoming State Science Fair, who later did not have her contract renewed. Officials at the University of Wyoming, which sponsors the state event, said after the international fair that the director acted outside her authority.
The newspaper reports Farnsworth is one of only about 15 high school students in the world to successfully build a nuclear fusion reactor. Farnsworth says his disqualification was silly.
He graduated this month and plans to attend the South Dakota School of Mines.

And get this. He "liked" doing them. What teen has time for masterbation when he is developing a nuclear reactor for multiple science fairs.

He graduated this month and plans to build an even bigger reactor and nuke the University of Wyoming.

There, fixed it for them .... ... and I'm sure more kids would build one if there was a kit or something available, .
