how it works:
A 14-year-old New York student was named “America’s Top Young Scientist”
for inventing a solar-powered
water jug that changes dirty water into purified drinking water.
not only surpassed 9 finalists with her science and math skills to win $25,000 from Discovery Education and 3M, she
persuaded the judges with a dynamic five-minute LIVE
presentation about the plight
of a billion poor people who
have no access to clean drinking
The cost effective and sustainable
water-purification system, which harnesses solar energy to disinfect contaminated water uses her own innovative process designed to overcome current problems with portable
purification. Her process
can kill many types of bacteria in a
fraction of the time of other methods.
