On March 19, *Inverse* spent the day with some of the most impressive and intelligent teenage scientists from all around New York. Hundreds of students met at the New York Hall of Science for the 2018 New York State Science & Engineering Fair. There, they competed for the coveted top prize, entry into this year's International Science & Engineering Fair, which is being held (disappointingly) in Pittsburgh. If you're picturing projects involving paper mache volcanoes and potato batteries, think again. These 17 year olds are studying subjects that are far beyond most of our understandings, and discovering scientific breakthroughs that would make any college professor jealous. They're, by every definition of the word, geniuses.
