Daquan just graduated from Milwaukee Marshall High School and will be attending the University of Platteville this fall to major in Environmental Science.
Current Project: Working on total suspended solids or TSS removal filtration methods to remove free floating material from water.
Dezmen is originally from St. Louis, Missouri and is a Chemical Engineering major at Tuskegee University in Alabama.
Jarod is going to be a senior at Milwaukee Marshall High School. He intends to major in Physics or Astrophysics in college.
Current Project: Testing a lead removal technology using a crushed bone which works to adsorb lead from water containing levels of lead
Lavender is currently pursuing her master’s in Communication at Illinois State University. She plans to utilize what she has learned about water science and the WaterPod technology to become a Clean Water and the WaterPod ambassador in Africa and more so in her home country of Kenya.
Current Project: Lavender is currently working on new innovative technologies to purify surface and underground water. These game-changing technologies will provide clean water to the world. The technologies are being tested in the United States and the results are excellent.
Matthew is from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and is going to be a junior this coming fall at South Broward High School. He is still undecided on what he would like to major in when he goes to college, but is interested in the marine engineering field, especially anything that has to do with water. He also has a passion for music.
Current Project: Testing a nitrate removal technology, using small sticky beads to adsorb nitrates from water containing levels of nitrate.
Dr. Moe and his minions at Marquette’s lab, located in Global Water Center
The Moe’s Minion program allows students from Milwaukee Marshall high school to come to the Global Water Center to work on water quality projects. Heading up the project, Dr. Kyana Young (a postdoctoral research fellow from Marquette University) said, “This program aims to train high school students who are historically underrepresented in environmental engineering, to conduct innovative drinking water treatment research.” Dr. Kyana believes that, “Drinking water quality has become a challenging compliance concern in cities across the nation. In response to the need for drinking water research, the program will train high school students to conduct research that focuses on reducing contaminant concentrations in drinking water. In addition to raising drinking water quality awareness, the high school program will create a robust pipeline of students pursuing water technical careers by affording them the opportunity to intern at the Global Water Center.” Stonehouse will continue to be a part of this great opportunity for inner city youth.
