Welcome to KeepTheWaterMoving.com. This is the site for the East Hartford High School 2013 Student Innovation Expo project. East Hartford is a community located on the east bank of the Connecticut River, in close proximity to Hartford and rich in history and tradition.
Our 2013 STEM class project is focusing on one of the world’s biggest problems, mosquitoes!
What is the world’s deadliest creature? The mosquito! Mosquitoes kill approximately 3 million people every year. With the growing number of mosquito-borne diseases, many people are becoming frightened of the dangers caused by the “bite sized” predators. Our team of East Hartford High School engineers developed an answer to all of our mosquito problems…a solar-powered water wiggler called the “Water H20rnet”. The Water H20rnet moves stagnant water in small pools and bird baths and thus prevents mosquito breeding grounds.
In addition to the Water H20rnet, we are also educating people locally – and possibly globally – on the dangers of creating breeding grounds for mosquitoes. Mosquitoes transmit West Nile Virus locally and Malaria globally. We need to help people realize that we are contributing to the mosquito population, therefore we can reduce it!

While visiting our site you will discover how we engineered our solar-powered water wiggler, how it works and our campaign to keep a mosquito-free backyard and how we will make the world a mosquito-free place. Thanks for visiting and have fun!!
