9th graders on the Gulf Oil Spill
BP engineers are ready to try anything to stop the spill. They have even opened up an online suggestion box.
As the spill continues to attract national attention, people of all ages are doing more than just watching anxiously.
At Loften High School in Gainesville, students in Maureen Shankman's science class say stockings can clean up the spill.
"We put dish detergent in there to break it up into small bits, then we used the stockings to get the rest of the oil out," said Michael Wilcox, a 9th grade student at Loften.
BP's suggestion box is spilling over, with over 4,000 ideas already submitted. In the end, it's up to BP and the U.S. Coast Guard, to find the best way to cleanup the mess.
