That didn't actually exist. Two separate excavations never found signs of anything under the school except for a small crawl space someone had dumped some trash into.

Seems rather sad state of our Patent system here in the US where a 19 year old with no prior technical background, who was a Chemical Engineering student, a sophomore no less (meaning barely finished or finishing General Ed. requirements and just starting Major courses), can write and file for a highly-technical patent involving radios, sensors, embedded devices, and the like.

It's very doubtful she understood how any of that works, or would work in her product/patent.
