    Above, St. Andrew's Priory students Rachel Tamashiro, 15, and Regina Huang, 16, have created a turbine that generates electricity from ocean currents. Their aim was a turbine that does not get fouled with seaweed or debris. Below, Huang checked out the turbine during sea trials in Maunalua Bay. It was suspended from a floating platform that has a rudder for direction and stability.
