Flow on: Students create ‘smart’ faucet that saves water and protects against germs

Students of the Experimental High School of the University of Macedonia were inspired and built a “smart tap”, which manages to fight water waste, but also the transmission of germs in our glass. In fact, for this achievement they were distinguished with the first prize in the Panhellenic Competition “Best Student Virtual Business 2021” of Junior Achievement Greece.

This is a student “start up” team, which will now represent Greece in the Pan-European Competition JA Europe Company of the YearCompetition 2021 to be held on July 15 in Lithuania and which will be attended by 40 European countries.
