Bronx teen Kenneth Shinozuka among Google Science Fair global finalists

A Bronx teen is one of only 15 Google Science Fair global finalists. 



Kenneth Shinozuka developed a small wearable sensor for Alzheimer's patients who have a tendency to wander, like his own grandfather. 



The pressure sensor he created goes on the bottom of the foot and can detect when a patient steps on the floor, sending a signal to their caregiver's smartphone. 



Rep. Eliot Engel (D-Bronx) released a statement, saying in part that Shinozuka's work "represents the promise of our future."
