Video by Science Friday
In this Science Friday video, Flora Lichtman visits Staten Island Technical High School to speak with the winners of the Time Warner Cable Inno/Vention Competition. The students -- Rebecca Kekelishvili, Thomas Stilwell, and Michelle Warchol -- with the mentorship of Steven Raile, designed the Comfort Control Wheelchair Seating System. Their invention makes a wheelchair more comfortable thanks to climate control, bacteria prevention, and pressure relief, as well as more maneuverable thanks to its Omni-Directional Drive Train.
The students will be on Science Friday today to speak with Flora about their invention.
