Smartest Kids in Colorado: Hydrogen car

They entered a hydrogen fuel cell car in an "intercontinental" competition in Detroit.

Next is here to tell you, once again about some amazing Colorado kids that will make your youth look misspent. Our search for the Smartest Kids in Colorado took us to Wheat Ridge High School this week. 

The 13 members of the school's STEM team (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) designed, built, tested and drove a hydrogen fuel cell car.

The car was entered in the Shell Eco Marathon, an "intercontinental" competition in Detroit. It was taken through its paces around a track, to see how little fuel it could use.

Their car took first place in the competition, for consuming the least amount of fuel.

Their winnings? A trophy, a $3,000 check for the school's STEM program and a spot on Next, of course.

We're still looking for the smartest kids in Colorado. If you know of one of those, let us know with an email, on Facebook or tweet #HeyNext.
