What's New

A group of our students in the Brown University Pre-College Engineering program are participating in the Lexus Eco Challenge. They researched and designed a device that can be placed in the East River to continuously remove toxins. This device will consist of a decanter centrifuge working in conjunction with a semipermeable membrane. They believe it will be able to reduce the amount of contaminants in polluted water at a faster rate than any currently existing technology. Please click here to check out their YouTube video!
