Wyoming teen who built fusion reactor goes to college
He has his permits from health and safety, but still needs a radiation permit from the university before he can start working on it again. It's no longer just a potential hazard for him.
He built a collapsible drone on a 3 D printer recently. It didn't fly, but it collapsed. He will pursue a working prototype in 2014.

"We granted those extra spots so they can better represent the students from Wyoming," Glidden said.

Few people outside of Conrad Farnsworth's small, northeast Wyoming town knew about his science. Fewer than 200 people had watched a video proving he was one of only 15 high school students in the world to successfully create a nuclear fusion reactor.
His teachers said they didn't know about the rule.
His passion for science hasn't changed. His fusion reactor, the one he built in his dad's shed on a hill outside of Newcastle, is now resting in a formal lab at the School of Mines.

Students are only allowed to go to one qualifying regional fair and then one qualifying state fair. The rule keeps students from jumping from one fair to another until he or she qualifies. Newcastle competitors went to the Wyoming Nike Classic Cortez Fleece
organization that runs the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair.
Coming in 2014: Farnsworth's fusion reactor is with him in South Dakota and he will continue to work on it and other projects.
Where things stand: Farnsworth went to University of South Dakota School of Mines. No rules were changed because of Farnsworth's ineligibility, but the University of Wyoming was given more spots to the international science fair.
Reflecting on the past year from outside his lab at South Dakota School of Mines, Farnsworth said the fame was unexpected and the outcome exactly what was meant to be.
He's also looking at nondestructive evaluation with ultrasound machines and doing "a little fractal research."
But it gave the Wyoming State Science Fair more spots for students to use to qualify for the international fair.
About one year ago, Farnsworth hoped to go to Massachusetts Institute of Technology and achieve honors at the international science fair with his reactor.
Any change is too late for Farnsworth's science fair future. He graduated from high school shortly after the disqualification. It was his last fair competition.
State Science Fair in Laramie, then went to South Dakota's regional science fair, since it was less than 100 miles away. Conrad qualified in South Dakota but not in Laramie.
He didn't make it into MIT, and on May 14, one day into the Intel science fair in Arizona, he was disqualified. He had participated in too many science fairs in the wrong order.
If your comment was not approved, perhaps.
Since May, the International Science Fair has not changed its stance on order or number of fairs, said Michele Glidden, director of science and education programs for the Society for Science and the Public, the Nike Cortez Classic Og Leather Qs White Sport Red
Then a classmate told a reporter about his feat. A story ran in the Casper Star Tribune in February detailing Farnsworth's reactor and his penchant for making everything from automatic potato guns to glow in the dark ties.
Then the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair kicked him out for a rules violation. He was devastated, and his story grew larger.
His YouTube views soared. His story ran on Fox News, The Huffington Post and Business Insider. State Rep. Hans Hunt, R Newcastle, lauded Conrad's achievement on the floor of the state House of Representatives.
Almost 74,000 page views. Another story in The Huffington Post and on Fox News. The Colbert Report even called Farnsworth to talk about a possible appearance.
He's not bitter or disappointed anymore.
What happened in 2013: Newcastle teen Conrad Farnsworth, 19, achieved national attention for becoming one of only 15 high school students in the world to create nuclear fusion. He was later kicked out of the science fair on a technicality.
