WASHINGTON—A 17-year-old New York City boy won a national science competition Tuesday for creating a sensor that detects exposure to toxic agents such as nerve gas.

David Bauer, a senior at Hunter College High School, earned a $100,000 college scholarship in the 2005 Intel Science Talent Search. He developed a way for rapidly detecting exposure to biochemical agents, with hopes that his discovery could be a lifesaver.


A total of 1,600 high school seniors submitted entries in all disciplines of science, including physics, math, engineering, social science and biology.
