Eighteen-year-old inventor Ryan Patterson is truly a young scientist. He designed a sign language translator glove that works by sensing the hand movements of the American Sign Language and sending the data to a device that displays the words on-screen. The "Glove" allows a deaf person to communicate easily with anyone. Ryan's invention won first place in the Siemens Westinghouse Science and Technology competition!
