Creating a Solution for the Dilution
STEM Academy Students Invent Limiter Devices for NISD Schools
Are your small “squirts” of watery hand sanitizer landing everywhere but on your hands? You are not alone, according to students enrolled in Northwest ISD’s STEM Academy

“Our students kept noticing large messes on the ground near the sanitizer bottle,” said Casey Helmick, STEM Coordinator at Northwest High School in Justin, Texas. “And often, sanitizer sprayed out onto your pants or shoes. It was a mess!”

With NISD campuses offering face-to-face learning during the COVID-19 pandemic, the district provided many tools to ensure students and staff were safe and hands were sanitized. One of the necessary items was a large hand sanitizer bottle for every classroom, shared space, office, and entryway.
