Sixth-Grader's Discovery Could Save Government Almost $400 Million
A sixth-grader from Pittsburgh, Pa. has discovered that changing the font on documents would cut down on ink and save the government millions of dollars each year.
Suvir Mirchandani, now 14, made the discovery from a science project, finding if school documents switched from Times New Roman to Garamond font, the school district could save $21,000 every year.
Mirchandani's teacher's had him send the findings to Harvard, where researchers convinced him to go to the government with the results.
He found that in a best case scenario, if the federal government changed to Garamond font, it could save up to $394 million dollars that would have spent on ink.
