Sponsoring Young Scientists in the Making

A rather  large  document  arrived at our office about 6 weeks ago from  a young  girl  by the name of  Kelly Ann Long who lives in South Africa.

Kelly  decided  to  use   Water$ave Plug for her science experiment.

She entered the Eskom Expo for Young Scientists competition with her entry titled "The use of an Australian Polymer to prevent water leakage in South African water-holding facilities." (available soon)

Kelly was awarded gold at the Regional Science Expo and then chosen to participate at the National Science Expo,where she was also awarded gold. Kelly also receiving The Water Division Gold Award from SAICE as a special award and from 552 projects was chosen as 1 of 3 students to represent South Africa at the ISWEEEP (International Sustainable World Energy, Engineering and Environment Project Olympiad) International Science Fair in May 2012 at Texas, USA.

We are truly amazed at the work and effort that Kelly has put into this project and upon receiving a copy of her assignment, we jumped at Kelly's request for help by sponsoring her on this once in a lifetime trip.

Kelly has a mature passion for science which is evident in the extent and quality of her project. Gold medals are a testament to this.  We wish Kelly the best of luck at ISWEEEP but clearly she is the type of person to make her own luck.
Enjoy the trip Kelly!!!
