JKHA Stem Students Place Second in National Edison Pitch Contest

Four JKHA eighth grade students of the Go Green with STEM club have won second prize in the Thomas Edison National Pitch Contest! The students had previously been selected as finalists and earned the chance to present their pitch on May 16, in front of a panel of judges at the Thomas Edison Laboratory. The students carefully researched the concepts and answered the questions posed by the judges with confidence and clarity. The students chose to work on a global problem that was directed toward access to clean water using non-renewable resources.

Under the guidance of Sri Sundaram, students made a three step machine using renewable resources. The first step of the machine is powered by a windmill that would help draw water from a water source and the second step is filtration of water using a bio-friendly water filter. The final step of the machine is powered by a solar panel to indicate the filtration of water and to indicate the level of water in a container. This third step is designed to avoid wasting water. Hannah Koppel, Nate Savitz, Jack Helprin and Miriam Bash were hard at work right from the beginning and were thrilled to be a part of this project.
