Webinar - Australian Stockholm Junior Water Prize Finalists
We are excited to showcase the 2021 Finalists of the Australian Stockholm Junior Water Prize and announce the winner live via webinar.



Taking place on Thursday 8 April at 12:30pm (AEST), hear from each of our young finalists as they present their water science projects. You'll also get the chance to ask questions during a Q&A and then we'll be announcing the winner live.

Here are our 2021 finalists and their water science projects:

• Bioflocculation - Annabelle Strachan, Meriden School
Annabelle's investigation explores whether dried lemon peel and ground chitosan is a feasible bio-flocculant as an accessible, safe, affordable and environmentally friendly option to reduce turbidity.

• Water, can the sun solve our shortages? - Tim Barth & Devon O'Connell - Danthonia High
Tim & Devon have created a solar water still that utilizes the power of the sun to purify water. Although their solar water distiller is not the first of its kind, it adds a few unique twists on the original idea that will hopefully make their model more fit to serve human good.
