The Particle Filter

The 2014 Imagine RIT Innovation Festival showcased what the creative students of the Rochester Institute of Technology can bring together in order to make an impact in the world’s lives. One student project that showed both innovation and creativity was the Particle Filter, located at the Kate Gleason College of Engineering. The Particle Filter is a low-cost bucket that has a stainless-steel filter to remove any small particles. They also have a partner who has a UV light that is powered by a bike to kill most, if not all, the bacteria in the water.
