WAPI (Water Pasteurization Indicator) Project
by Kate Gonzalez from the post on the Rotary Club of Folsom Facebook page.
On Saturday, November 13, we had our WAPI Project assembly at Granite School with the Folsom High School Interact Club.  It was such a great experience for both clubs to work together to create Water Pasteurization kits to help people around the world who are in need of clean drinking water.  We will be working with @humans_for_education to send these WAPIs to the Maasai Tribe in Kenya.
President Steve Brozosky commented on the Facebook posting the following:

"This is such a great international project and I was so excited to be part of it along with the Folsom High School Interact Club. These test kits that were build let you know when your water is safe to drink. Many places do not have safe drinking water so they have to boil their water first. This inexpensive device lets them know when the temperature of the water has reached the point of pasteurization and is safe to drink. Without these kits, they waited for the water to boil which uses a lot more energy, another limited resource."
