In some ways, 15-year-old Jack Andraka is a normal teenager. He’s a fan of "Glee" and likes to kayak. But he’s also the mind behind a new pancreatic cancer test that is 168 times faster than anything else in the field. In May, Jack won $75,000 at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair for his test.
