A group of three female students from Banneker High School made the top 10 in a national engineering contest sponsored by NASA. The winner will be determined by a vote, so they need your help! The dynamic trio – Banneker students Bria Snell, India Skinner and Mikayla Shariff – are referred to as the “In3 Team.” They have created a water filter to address the issue of excess lead in urban water systems; their filter is designed specifically for school water fountains.
Voting is open now and will last through Monday, April 30, 2018. Voting is open to anyone in the 50 U.S. states and territories. To support the In3 Team:
