A trio of students at Downingtown High School West have invented an instrument that enables people to track water levels via Twitter.
The devices, dubbed Aqua Tweeters, will be set up in flood prone areas of Downingtown, allowing public officials to monitor water levels in public areas, according to Philly.com
The students — Kristina Griste, Andrew Kim and Kate Pelcin — developed the device as part an Introduction to Engineering Design class.
The device, connected to WiFi or a cellular network, includes a sensor to measure the water level and a camera to capture an image. The picture and information are then tweeted to a public Twitter account.
