We want to congratulate all members of Team USA and Team Australia for their incredible efforts at the inaugural Water Innovation Challenge, hosted at ITE College East in Singapore this week. Over three humid competition days – plus many more hours before and during the event spent designing and developing their project concepts – it was Team USA who emerged on top and scooped the first Water Innovation Challenge title.
