PAANI takes first place at 2019 Invent@SU campus edition
Bridging the gap between water access and its improved quality
During the six-week Invent@SU program, Nikita Chatterjee '20 (Economics) and Brianna Howard '20 (Public Health) designed and built a prototype for an invention combining a traditional sari with advanced water filters built in.
