So, here’s what this amazing team of A&M students accomplished:

Students developed a pitch to solve a problem statement related to achieving a healthier lifestyle in communities of color negatively impacted by such problems as climate change, food insecurity and other issues. 

The AAMU team developed a solution tackling a more specific aspect of the problem that honed in on the “Black residents in Lowndes County, Ala.,” where there is “little to no access to a municipal sewage system” or “functional septic systems.”

The students’ solution focused on a reduction in toxicity, smell and overall sewage by reducing the number of pathogenic organisms and chlorinating the liquid part of the sewage using their proposed prototype, Sewage Cleansing and Reduction System
