Meet The 14-Year-Old Girl Who Developed A Low-Cost Water Purification System | FastCompany
The next generation of scientists is already hard at work solving our biggest problems. Take Deepika Kurup, a 14-year-old high school student from Nashua, New Hampshire. After seeing children in India drinking dirty water from a stagnant pool, she decided, in her words, “to find a solution to the global water crisis.” And then she actually made some progress towards that goal, developing a solar-powered water purification system.

She is the future

Ever notice how it’s always brilliant teenagers making stuff that will actually solve the world’s worst problems, like what do adults even do?

They sit around and tell kids how they are ruining society with selfies. Also, that their ideas, no matter how cost efficient, aren’t going to work on a large scale.


Kids are so much better thinkers because they aren’t trapped in shitty rigid functional fixedness so they can think outside the box and use different things not for their intended purpose. Adults are stuck like that AND they refuse to aknowledge it as well.
