Microsoft's Imagine Cup

A mobile app for diagnosing disease. A video game aimed at fighting poverty. A "robo nanny" that assists teachers in the classroom. Sort of puts your high-school science project to shame, huh? Short on years but long on vision, more than 300,000 student inventors tackled global problems for Microsoft's international competition. Some 500 of them will descend on Warsaw, Poland, for the finals. "So many young students are being innovative and bringing new ideas to market," says Helena Xu, 22, a U.S. team member. "The future is going to be shaped by young adults like us." -- Suzy Evans
