Congratulations to Zach Preston, who presented his solution, Sentinel, ‘A simple device to never run out of water again’ at TedxChristchurch earlier this month.
Zach is an engineering student at the University of Canterbury and a keen teenage innovator.
At the age of 18, he founded Sentinel Water: an eco-tech startup that aims to reimagine how tanked water supplies are managed sustainably and effectively.
From pitching technology solutions to Microsoft in Seattle to being awarded Top of New Zealand AL Computer Science, Zach has always been fascinated by how technology can completely change the way people think and live.
Having worked across several industries as a freelancer, Zach is deeply passionate about applying imagination and creative problem-solving to Aotearoa’s toughest problems through empathetic design.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
