Our son won the “Hand of Da Vinci” contest at the High Museum by designing a habitat to breed TOX Mosquitos (they kill Malaria carrying mosquitos) and would like to know how we may assist in helping out as well as getting additional exposure for his design. The CDC has shown interest in this and we would like expose it to as many people possible to help eradicate Malaria. Please leave a comment on how we may contact any interested parties.
