Challenge Statement 1 Winner - Vanya Teh
The project's primary objective was to explore the role of electrolytes in seawater in facilitating the production of green hydrogen using freshwater sources.
Challenge Statement 2 Winner - Aquarriors
The team dedicated their efforts to creating innovative and distinctive modules with the aim of enhancing user engagement on the Water Heroes Academy platform. They designed interactive games that enable platform users to understand the intricate relationship between the root causes of water pollution and their resulting impacts. These games serve as valuable tools for educating individuals about the gravity of the issue and empowering them with knowledge on potential solutions they can undertake as responsible individuals.
Challenge Statement 3 Winner - Plastic @ Pasig
In a world where plastics have seamlessly integrated into our daily routines, it's increasingly challenging to evade their usage. Nevertheless, these determined students, actively involved in their school's water sustainability initiative, fearlessly delved into a comprehensive study on the detrimental consequences of plastic waste within Southeast Asia's most heavily polluted river, the Pasig River in the Philippines. Their proposed solution stands out for its practicality and sustainability, presenting a feasible path towards addressing this pressing issue.
Challenge Statement 4 Winner - Greener Malls for the Future
Singapore's local statistics reveal a striking reality: the proliferation of shopping malls, averaging one every 3.5 kilometers, has led to a significant surge in energy consumption, making commercial buildings the top energy consumers in the region. Furthermore, the prevalent reliance on air conditioning systems has substantially exacerbated the Urban Heat Island Effect. Concerns about water resources are equally pressing, with the commercial sector already accounting for 55% of Singapore's total water consumption, and projections indicating a troubling upward trend.
Grand Winner - Ocean Rescuers
By harnessing the power of data science and geographic information systems (GIS), they meticulously charted the landscape of waterway pollution in India.
Challenge Statement 1 Winner - UAE Micro Algae
This project delves into the vast potential of microalgae in the eco-friendly generation of green hydrogen, minimizing water consumption to an unprecedented degree. Furthermore, it capitalizes on the unique geographic advantages of the UAE for efficient green hydrogen production.
Challenge Statement 2 Winner - BlueHub
The project promotes community-wide water conservation by introducing a cutting-edge smartphone application known as BlueHub. This ingenious app empowers individuals to gauge their water consumption, offering a range of strategies to curtail their usage effectively. As an added incentive, users have the opportunity to earn rewards and connect with like-minded water-conscious individuals.
Challenge Statement 3 Winner - Plastic 2 Power
A team of enterprising college students has pioneered an advanced plastic sorting system, employing the power of artificial intelligence (AI). This groundbreaking innovation has revolutionized waste management sites, making the efficient and straightforward processing of plastic waste a reality. Subsequently, the gathered plastic waste undergoes a transformative process known as "plastic paralysis," converting it into valuable and sustainable energy resources.
