Each year, hundreds of middle-school students compete in the national Broadcom Masters competition. This year’s winner, Georgia Hutchinson, 13, invented a solar-energy system that can figure out the sun’s location at any time.

Hutchinson received $25,000 for her device and is working on patenting the invention. She told Business Insider she hoped the invention would provide an economic incentive for people to invest in solar energy.
