Biomimicking Torrey Pine Needles: Atmospheric Moisture Harvesting Device Through Alternating Hydrophilic and Hydrophobic Micro-Patterns

Emily is a senior at The Cambridge School. She is a thinker, researcher, and inventor inspired by the natural world and devoted to creating social impact. For the last four years, she has explored a possible method to overcome water scarcity by biomimicking the Torrey Pine tree's moisture harvesting mechanisms. Passionate about water conservation and environmental sustainability, Emily and her brother launched an outreach program, Clearwater Innovation, which generates awareness of the global water crisis and encourages water-related research in home labs. Emily has also competed in robotics for the past six years and is a varsity golf and basketball player.
