    "Every year Hubble Middle School holds a big science fair, which all the students have to enter. It's very competitive: The first prize is $5,000 cash, donated by a Hubble alum who's an Internet billionaire. The problem is, the prize is always won by rich kids from Manor Estates who cheat -- their hyper-ambitious parents hire 'coaches' who do the work for the kids, so the kids will have good resumes for college. It turns out that one of the 'coaches' is a thug from the country of Kprshtskan -- a country with no vowels. He's actually helping the kids to build components to an EMD -- electro-magnetic device -- that will render all computer chips in the DC area useless, shutting down the federal government. This, under the cover of a middle school science fair, relying on the insane competitiveness of the rich parents to actually pay to construct this device. Our heroes figure this out, but of course nobody believes them -- they're just fighting dirty and trying to get the ME kids disqualified. They have to disarm the weapon before it's effective and expose the agents from Kprshtskan. And of course, by doing so, win the science fair and the money prize" -- from publisher's web site.
