Deepika Kurup won $25,000 for her invention in the Discovery Education 3M Young Scientist Competition.
14-year-old Deepika Kurup invented a solar-powered water purification system for the Discovery Education 3M Young Scientist Challenge. She won $25,000 for her low-cost system, which exposes titanium oxide and zinc oxide to the sun, creating a chemical reaction that generates hydroxyl radicals. These can kill harmful bacteria in water, purifying it by significantly reducing the coliform units and E.Coli colonies.
