Project 94

Challenge Question

How can we best address removing liquid pollutants from oceans?

Partner: Inzymes - Innovation Enzymes Group

Project Summary

Plastics are clogging our rivers, lakes, waterways, and oceans, climate change is raising ocean temperatures and affecting the health of coral reefs, and contaminants are saturating our waterways. A research team is invited to intervene in this situation by designing and building a remotely operated vehicle outfitted with the sensors and the capabilities that enable it to mediate the effects of pollution, climate change and chemical contamination in different bodies of water. The primary focus of this challenge is on remediation (meaning cleaning up) rather than the permanent fixing of the root of these problems. A research team might include individuals with knowledge of mechanical, electrical and computer engineering, environmental studies, pollution, climate change, geography, and oceanography.
