Jewish STEM saviour

Melissa Fagan, a 17-year-old senior at the San Diego Jewish Academy in California, could help save thousands of lives on the battlefield and in third world countries with a new way to disinfect wounds. Fagan studied how silver was being used as an anti-microbial agent. Although it was a breakthrough, silver has a short active life. Fagan found a way to increase the active life of silver. Her discovery won her more than USD 16000 in scholarships at an international science and engineering competition. Now, she's getting her invention patented so it can help patients around the globe.
