The Project

I want to work on solving the current world water crisis. At first, I wanted to make a filtration system but soon realised it was better to tackle the root of the problem, which is the build-up of lime that can affect water flow and lead to rusting. Through my research, I came upon this system called the “electronic water softener” and decided to attempt making one myself.

Meeting my industry mentor was really fun. In fact, we built the experimental setup process because he encouraged us to go for it so I think he definitely helped to get this project a step ahead. Working on the project, every step of it including Phase 1 through to the ideation process and brainstorming, to the actual making was mind-opening and really fun.
