Turkish School Kids Invent Gas Detection Device

"Turkish School Kids Invent Gas Detection Device
ERZURUM - Two Turkish school kids in the eastern province of Erzurum have invented a device which detects gas leak and automatically shuts down the heating system.

Sixth grade students, Omer and Yalcin Laloglu, submitted their project to a competition held by the Ministry of National Education and the Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TUBITAK).

The device, which costs 15 YTL (10 USD), triggers an alarm siren in case of a leak and fans out the gas while at at the same time shuts down the heating system."
