Invent Green Solutions

Blake Turner thinks everyone should be able to afford a more planet-friendly vehicle, not just the wealthy. That's why he invented a $5,000 conversion kit that can transform any gas-powered vehicle into a car that runs on clean-burning hydrogen. Students like Blake believe change isn't a maybe, it's a must.
