NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- Reps from Entergy and a local oil and gas company are already inquiring about ninth grader Grayson Barron's backpack with a practical application - it converts into a portable desk, and tenth grader Zachary LaBarre is hypothesizing a practical way to tackle two environmental problems unique to New Orleans; too many discarded Mardi Gras beads and potholes that litter the streets.
