InvenTeam – High school students develop a device that provides clean drinking water for undeveloped countries like Uganda. The project is an entry into a national competition submitted by the Eastern Regional High school in Voorhees. This New Jersey school is one of 16 schools nationally to receive a grant from MIT to participate in the 2011-12 InvenTeam initiative. The initiative inspires a new generation of inventors by engaging students in creative thinking, problem-solving and hands-on learning in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. About 15 students work with Gifted and Talented Coordinator Donna Donato and AP Physics teacher Mr. Freedman to develop a device that cleans water with the use of a bike. By pedaling, two UV lights disinfect the water by killing the bacteria.
