The science behind science fair grand champion Gaurav Mittal's GMO detection device

While his classmates were playing video games or scrolling through Facebook, as many teenagers tend to do, Gaurav Mittal was creating a homemade polymerase chain reaction thermal cycler.
That is, a device used to detect whether a food is genetically modified.
The 14-year-old’s invention earned him the honor of grand champion at the annual North Museum Science & Engineering Fair, held Wednesday at Spooky Nook Sports.
