My name is Soumya Srinivasan. I am a student studying in grade eight at Turnbull School. My hobbies are sports (soccer, volleyball, cricket, table tennis, badminton) and also, singing (bollywood). I also study hard and work to achieve my goals in school. I came first in my school science fair this year, as well as last year. I participated in the regionals both years, but I was most successful this year. My father is a computer scientist so that was where the inspiration of designing a circuit came from. This year, for my science fair, I wanted to do something that helped people, that could save lives. I had a few experiment ideas in mind, but I thought this one would go the farthest. I have an application for a patent, so further investigations depend on that. My advice to students thinking about doing a project would be 'The sky is the limit, Shoot for the stars. Do something you really enjoy.' In the future I am planning to be a doctor, again because I would like to make a difference and help people, who need my help.

It is more reliable, affordable, and convenient than the best device commercially available, is designedly less prone to false alarms, and has been tested on diverse water sources for global effectiveness. A patent has been filed.
