New College student Antonia "Toni" Ginsberg-Klemmt has been named a 2021 OZY Genius Award recipient, earning a $10,000 grant awarded annually to 10 college students pursuing “projects or ideas that have a positive impact on society.” Ginsberg-Klemmt was chosen from thousands of applicants across the country for her patent-pending invention GismoPower—a mobile solar carport with an integrated electric vehicle charger that she designed for the New College campus. GismoPower, which stands for “Garage/Interior Storable Modular Photovoltaic on Wheels and Evcharger Rack,” grew out of Ginsberg-Klemmt's independent study project at New College, where she is studying physics and environmental science.
