InnovationSpace: Bringing water to rural Arizona

Posted: Nov 02, 2010 | 9 min 33 sec

“How do you create new products and services in a way that improves people’s lives, improves society and minimizes environmental impact,” asks Prasad Boradkar, the director of InnovationSpace – a unique social entrepreneurship program at ASU that supports students in their quest to create a more livable and sustainable world. 

Students are working to better harness water in some of Arizona’s most vast and arid landscapes in helping serve Native American reservation communities that lack clean drinking water. InnovationSpace students use biomimicry methods – inspired by the Namib beetle, which has a highly evolved and effective strategy of collecting water on its back – to design a device that will capture moisture from the atmosphere.
