8-year-old Mexican, Xóchitl Guadalupe Cruz has invented a solar water heater.
She has been awarded UNAM’s Institute of Nuclear Sciences for creating a device, totally solar-powered, which can heat water.
According to a report by Cultura Colectiva the device by the 8-year-old uses recyclable materials for her creation.
Xóchitl’s invention might seem unnecessary for 1st World Countries, but in her community, the only source of hot water is cutting up logs that would not only release fumes into the environment but also lead to deforestation.
She loves to be involved in science projects and competitions and was quick to utilize her knowledge of technology to bring about change in her immediate surroundings.
This solar-powered water heater has the potential to help millions around the world who still depend on wood for heating water.
It will also save the environment while giving the users the comfort of a warm bath on a winter morning.
