Evan Yasick is currently a semifinalist in a nationwide competition to invent and design a tool that has the capability  to do two or more purposes and can work in zero gravity. If he is a finalist, his tool could be used by astronauts on the International Space Station (ISS).

“[My tool] holds pens, pencils, screwdrivers or any other tool [the astronauts] would really need,” Yasick said. “And they clip onto the device in little lego hands; there’s also a compartment that they can put bolts, screws, and trash in. And then it hooks to your pants, so they can have it on them all the time.”
