Press Release

Innovation Title:
Water desalination system.

Name and Age of Inventors (at the time of innovation):

Problem Statement:
Water is a depleting resource and humans have overused groundwater reserves. Further, many countries have close access to the ocean while they struggle with acute water shortages. Pure drinking water is getting scarce as cities grow. The water level in cities is going down. Desalinating ocean water is a painfully slow and energy-consuming process.

About the Innovation:
Young innovators from DiscoverSTEM came up with a system that accelerates the desalination of ocean water for human consumption without using any external energy source for desalination. The water is heated through geothermal heat and steam rises to high water tanks, thus eliminating the need for the water pump and the energy for that purpose.

DiscoverSTEM founders Mirza Rizwan and Mirza Faizan have made history by becoming the first Indian to win the coveted George Washington Honor Medal from the Freedoms Foundation – USA.

Started in 1949 by former US President Dwight D. Eisenhower, Freedoms Foundation honors exceptional contributions of Americans towards communities in the USA. Generally reserved for the US citizens, the awarding organization made an exception to recognize the stellar research work and its impact of India’s Mr. Rizwan in designing and implementing a unique STEM & Innovation program for American children, thereby revolutionizing the education system in the USA.

Few of the other notable non-US citizens who have received George Washington Honor Medal include Ms. Margaret Thatcher (Former Prime Minister of United Kingdom), Lech Walesa (Former President of Poland and Noble Prize winner) and world-renowned Russian writer Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn. As the latest recipients of this prestigious honor, Mirza brothers join historically acclaimed group of citizens whose work and dedication advance the American ideals, the award letter says.

Some of the distinguished US citizens who have received this award for their stellar contributions in their field are Walt Disney, Astronauts Sally Ride and John Glenn, Capt. Sully Sullenberger, Athletes like Arthur Ashe, George Foreman and Tiger Woods and famous US educator Jaime Escalante.
