About a dozen teenage girls in a California school district invented a solar-powered tent that folds into a backpack to help the homeless in their community. Recruited by DIY Girls, a nonprofit that teaches girls from low-income communities about STEM, they won a $10,000 grant from the Lemelson-MIT Program to develop the invention and will present it today at an MIT conference.
