J'lem teens develop system to detect, stop water leaks
By JUDY SIEGEL-ITZKOVICH 12/15/2010
The prize-winning computerized device invented by two 19-year-olds measures household water consumption to avoid waste.
A user-friendly computerized device that detects water leaks in apartments, buildings, factories and neighborhoods in real time and can even halt the water flow is among the top winners of this year’s Stockholm Junior Water Prize, and may one day be part of routine installations.
Its inventors were two teenagers who earned high school matriculation and bachelor’s of science degrees simultaneously at a unique Jerusalem yeshiva high school.
On Wednesday, the two 19- year-olds – Gal Oren and Nerya Stroh of the Jerusalem College of Technology (JCT) Torah & Science Yeshiva High School – will show their Aquastop invention to Swedish Ambassador Elinor Hammarskjöld.
