Thai students win prize for invention

Two Thai students from a school in Chiang Rai have won an award at the Stockholm Junior Water Prize 2021 for their invention.

Deputy Education Minister Khunying Kalaya Sophonpanich yesterday congratulated two Thai grade-10 students from Damrongratsongkroh School in Chiang Rai, Thanawit Namjaidee and Future Kongchoo.

They won a Diploma of Excellence in a sustainability-based water-saving competition.

Their invention -- Bio-Moisture-Nutrient Absorbing Belt for Promoting Sugarcane Seedling Growth from Local Waste -- can boost nutrients for seedlings and reduce the need for watering to adhere to sustainable development goals.

She said the students were selected by the Institute for the Promotion of Teaching Science and Technology to compete at this year's online tournament.
