    Jim Dingilian proves that a creative and skillful artist can create works of art with just about anything. By coating the interior of empty glass bottles with black smoke and then carefully brushing it away with tools mounted on dowels, he creates detailed and beautiful but dark works of smoke art that are dripping with a sense of suburban decay (via Bored Panda).

    Teen creates bio-plastic from banana peels

    Sixteen-year-old Elif Bilgin of Turkey has developed a way to replace traditional petroleum-based plastic with banana peels.

    The Turkish teen took home a US$50,000 prize for her project “Go Bananas!” Thursday after winning the second annual Scientific American Science in Action Award, associated with Google Science Fair.

    “My project makes it possible to use banana peels, a waste material which is thrown away almost every day, in the electrical insulation of cables,” Bilgin said in a media statement.

    “This is both an extremely nature-friendly and cheap process, which has the potential to decrease the amount of pollution created due to the use of plastics, which contain petroleum derivatives.”

    Bilgin spent two years developing the bio-plastic, which does not decay. She said the process is so easy that it is possible to repeat at home, with special care taken for chemicals used in the production process.

    In September, the teen will compete at Google’s California headquarters for the overall Google Science Fair prize for 15-to-16 year olds. She will also have access to a one-year mentorship.

    Has anyone else noticed how many brilliant breakthroughs in science are coming from the minds of teenage girls the last few years? Between this story, the four girls in Nigeria who invented a generator that runs on urine, the California girl who invented a twenty-second cell phone charger… Who knows where we’d be today without the patriarchal interference of men, stealing or hiding the brilliance of women?

    Our future is in the hands of teenage girls, and I for one feel really good about that.

    When I was about 7 I wanted to invent a thing that purified water based off of fish gills. I went to the school library to do research like a good little inventor and one of my teachers asked me what I was doing, and then told me that there were some new barbie books in, and that I’d probably be better off with those.

    Don’t forget the girl who invented a torch that’d light up just from the heat of your hands

    basically everyone should stop s***ting on teenage girls because they do awesome things when you let them

    or that one time a girl found the cure for cancer that we could be using in 15 years

    But nah, girls and women just suck at math and science and have never invented anything worthwhile. Sure. Right.

    SOMEONE FINALLY SAID IT

    So if a teenager is at school for roughly 8 hours, and they are doing homework for 6+ hours, and they need AT LEAST 9 HOURS OF SLEEP FOR THEIR DEVELOPING BRAINS, then they may have 0-1 hours for other activities like eating, bathing, exercise, socializing (which is actually incredibly important for emotional, mental, and physical health, as well as the development of skills vital to their future career and having healthy romantic relationships among other things), religious activities, hobbies, extra curriculars, medical care of any kind, chores (also a skill/habit development thing and required by many parents), relaxation, and family time?  Not to mention that your parents may or may not pressure you to get a job, or you might need to get one for economic reasons.

    I will never not reblog this

    "…but teenagers have no reason to be stressed."

    It’s also shown in many researches that homework isn’t very helpful for learning. Especially homework that is busy work or homework that doesn’t come with constructive criticism (I’m too lazy to source/on mobile, so just google it). also it does not promote learning or retention in grades before high school (and very little after a certain amount of hours for high schoolers), yet we push homework so much. America prides itself on it’s education
    BUT WE ONLY RANK 36TH IN THE WORLD.
    Our education system pushes testing and homework entirely too much. So much so that those with the old standards are having trouble problem solving and critically thinking, especially when it comes to doing so in their jobs.
