Ten-year-old girl discovers new molecule

When Kenneth Boehr, a fifth-grade teacher at a Montessori school in Kansas City, Mo. instructed his students to build molecules with modeling kits, one of them, Clara Lazen, 10, randomly arranged a unique combination of oxygen, nitrogen and carbon atoms. Boehr's friend Robert Zoellner, a chemistry professor at Humboldt State University, determined that Lazen’s molecule was unique and had the potential to store energy. Zoellner published a research paper on his findings to the January issue of Computational and Theoretical Chemistry, listing Lazen and Boehr as co-authors.
