A 12-Year-Old’s Invention Is Making Waves in the Battle for Clean Water
When 12-year-old Gitanjali Rao became aware of the Flint, Michigan water crisis, she felt compelled to jump in and do what she could to help. And as a budding scientist, this meant putting her skills in the lab to work. She eventually developed a portable device that allows people to determine if their water is safe to drink. For her efforts, Gitanjali was named America’s Top Young Scientist. The young inventor reminds us all that we can put our talents to work to help others.
