The Puranik Foundation presents Lotus Innovation Awards Gala
The Lotus Innovation Awards is a fundraiser that gives high school students an opportunity to design the future of sustainability through youth activism.
The Energy Project offers high school students the opportunity to impact the future of sustainability by co-creating sustainable innovations to benefit Houston by problem-solving local energy challenges. In teams, students work together to design innovative alternative energy approaches to sustaining areas in solar, wind, agriculture, building materials, water purification, and biofuel. During the program, students cover a four-pillar curriculum that includes design thinking, alternative energy 101, an integrative approach with leadership training, and entrepreneurship and business plan pitches preparing students for a promising future. One of the student innovation projects will be awarded a $15,000 grant for the implementation of the unique prototype.
