Pupils from the ‘t Slingertouw in Eindhoven won a prize at the Bright Ideas Challenge with their ‘water robot’.
They developed a robot that not only collects and purifies water. This robot can also water the plants in your garden. It works like this: the robot collects rainwater. This water is then filtered through gravel, stones, cottonwool, and coffee filters. This process purifies it. The robot then uses this clean water to irrigate plants.
The Bright Ideas Challenge is a competition where primary schools can take part in various categories. Group 7 and 8 pupils from across the country have to devise ideas to solve significant challenges. ‘t Slingertouw walked away with first prize in the ‘Water’ category.
