The students, Tyler Richards and Jonathan Thompson, from North Liberty High School, are part of Project Lead The Way, a STEM education project that aims to bring students closer to technology.
According to TechCrunch, Richards and Thompson used the skills they learned in the programme to brainstorm, design and print a new cap that ensures that only ketchup comes out of the bottle instead of the weak, tea-like slop.
People need to just shake the bottle Geez. Now if you can figure out a way to get the ketchup to come out in a nice even stream instead of the explode ketchup all over the hot dog bun and surrounding items THAT would be worth something, the report said.
More like "Geez, the two students created a cooler cap for ketchup using tools that are accessible to the average high school student and are getting world-wide recognition for their efforts," it added.
