 A 17-year-old Park City High School PC Caps student won the Edison Award last month for his bio-degradable multi-function plastic spoon, fork, knife utensil.

Park City High School Senior, Nicholas Markels says it was a surprise to learn his invention, called the sporknife, won the Edison Award grand prize for innovation and design. He submitted 3-D images, engineering designs and a photograph of the prototype he had built.
