10-Year-Old Accidentally Creates New Molecule in Science Class...
Clara Lazen is the discoverer of tetranitratoxycarbon, a molecule constructed of, obviously, oxygen, nitrogen, and carbon. It's got some interesting possible properties, ranging from use as an explosive to energy storage. Lazen is listed as the co-author of a recent paper on the molecule. But that's not what's so interesting and inspiring about this story. What's so unusual here is that Clara Lazen is a ten-year-old fifth-grader in Kansas City, MO.

I read this article earlier OP, and am giving yours a bump, 5 stars, and vote for a pin.

This girl.....wow.  Smart or lucky?  At first, I really leaned toward the luck part, but thinking about it, I don't recall studying advanced chemistry like this in the 5th grade!  She must be a whiz, in an accelerated learning environment???

The teacher, wow!!! Why can't every student have an instructor like this.....who takes time to investigate.....and give credible belief in a child's ideas or creations or thought processes....


Great find....thanks for posting.

How could this be so awesome if what you create could potentially be used to take so many peoples lives?

Tetranitratoxycarbon, more formally known as tetrakis(nitratoxycarbon)methane,[1] is a hypothetically-possible molecule, not yet synthesised, and unknown to science until ten-year-old Clara Lazen (a fifth-grader in Kansas City, Missouri) assembled a model of it in 2012. She is credited as co-author of a scientific paper on the molecule.

She didn't invent shit. She put pieces of colored plastic together into a geometrically interesting shape.
