Not only did this Swaziland team make it to the finals of the Google Science Fair (they'll fly to Google's HQ in California in July) but they've won Scientific American's 'Science in Action' award!

Sakhiwe Shongwe and Bonkhe Mahlalela's project explores an affordable way to provide hydroponics to poor subsistence farmers. In addition to the $50,000 in prize funds, Sakhiwe and Bonkhe will also have access to a year’s mentorship to explore how their project can help the lives of subsistence farmers in Swaziland and around the world. They are also still in the running for their age category prize and the grand prize.  

Huge congrats to these young scientists and wishing them all the best for the next rounds!
