Schoolchildren Build a Better Condom
“A group of schoolchildren from Essex, England, have invented a condom that detects sexually transmitted infections such as chlamydia and syphilis.
“The condom would change color to warn the couple if a strain of bacteria is present.”
That’s the entire text of the story, which leaves a lot to be desired. Like:
What grade were these kids in? How did they test it (Did they have their parents try them?) If the condom changes color when detecting the organism, does it maintain its strength?
