Water retention and purification vehicle: Mission to the Moon Makeathon
- Mission to the Moon
- 9-10 Grade
Our challenge related to water on the moon. We invented a space vehicle designed to drill inside craters and reach deep layers containing ice crystals. The rotation of the bulldozer produces heat which melts the ice and turns it into liquid water remaining in liquid form which can they be used by humans. After collecting the water a UV filter system purifies the contaminated water, making it safe for consumption.We used techniques such as 3D printing, electric circuits, internet coding, carpentry and plaster molding to create our prototype.
