Problem Statement:
One of the biggest challenges of the City’s water filtration and distribution system is Lifting water from lower to higher areas. First, energy consumption is a concern, as pumps or mechanisms are needed to overcome gravity. This often leads to increased operational costs and environmental impacts.
Secondly, infrastructure must be robust to handle the weight and pressure of water. Additionally, factors like distance, elevation, and terrain further complicate the task. Proper planning along with sustainable and innovative solutions are essential to address these challenges.

About the Innovation:
Young innovators at DiscoverSTEM developed an ingenious system to lift water using wind power and multi-level tanks. The wind turbine rotates a spiral pipe at high speed which sucks water at the lower level and delivers it to the higher-level tank. Using a series of multi-level tanks and spiral pipes, water can be easily lifted without the use of electricity and water pumps.

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.
