15-YEAR-OLD GIRL CREATES POWER GENERATING WATER FILTER
Last week, True Activist published a story about a 15-year-old who invented a shoe insolethat creates electricity while you walk. His device was a submission for this year’s “Google Science Fair” which features a number of brilliant inventions, many of which were created by teenagers and young children.
Another finalist in this year’s contest is 17-year-old Cynthia Sin Nga Lam from Australia, who also has an invention that creates electricity. Her invention is a water purification system that does not require an external power source, but actually creates electricity of its own.
Her device, which she calls a Portable Photocatalytic Electricity Generation and Water Purification Unit, or H2Pro for short, produces both clean energy and fresh water at the same time.
She hopes that one day her invention can be used to bring water and electricity to people in remote, poverty-stricken areas who are currently struggling to find access to these basic amenities.
