Issaquah Chemistry Club wins competition
July 22, 2014
The Issaquah High School Chemistry Club took first place in the “Imagine Tomorrow” competition.
The club created a portable shower kit intended for use in countries that lack proper hygiene. It utilizes a filter system that reuses water from the shower that is cleaned before each use.
The team won first place in Congressional District 8 for new schools to the competition, as well as first place in the design category.
The performance earned the club a $5,500 check, and the project was passed along to an organization that is considering using the shower in Sierra Leone.
