A Green Solution to Clean Water

Providing Access to Clean Water, with the UIdaho Clean Water Machine

Grand Challenge Pitch

I wrote a paper on the state of global clean water provision for a class assignment. I had no idea it was still as big of an issue as it is and immediately desired to find out what I could do to make any difference. The U.N. declares access to water as a basic human right, and yet roughly 10 percent of the globe is lacking. If I can learn about the causes of the problem, study the effects of implementing solutions and learn why some project succeed and others fail.

I will spend my next two semesters at U of I researching under Professor Greg Moller, on the UI Clean Water Machine.

I plan to take courses from the College of Natural Resources and will also take a senior seminar at Washington State.

I will help plan and execute for-profit fundraisers for the U of I chapter of the Humanitarian Engineering Corps (HEC). I also plan to take Professor Bryn Martin’s ISEM-301 course on Tech Startup entrepreneurship.

I will complete a study abroad session this coming summer in Suzhou, China and also be continually involved with the HEC Bolivia water project.

I plan to be an active member of HEC and participate in volunteer activities through the group. I also will volunteer weekly at the Palouse Bicycle Collective in Moscow.

Grand Challenge Focus Area

Provide Access to Clean Water

Today, the availability of water for drinking and other uses is a critical problem in many areas of the world.
