Over the summer of 2022, we hosted two Station1 Fellows working on Elateq’s water treatment technology. We were thrilled to have Victor and Grace joining our team this summer and wish them good luck
in their next endeavors! Congrats on completing the fellowship!
Station1 is a new nonprofit higher education institution, founded by researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2016, that is paving a pathway of opportunity through a new model of learning and research – socially-directed science and technology. This model integrates science and technology with humanistic fields and the social sciences to interrogate, understand, and shape technologically-driven societal impact towards more equitable, just, ethical, and sustainable outcomes. Core to the Station1 model is broadening access and opportunity for students of color, those from low-income households, and those who are the first generation to college. To advance this mission, Station1 designs and delivers transformative education, research, innovation, and collective impact programs and initiatives employing unique hybrid methods powered by leading and emerging digital infrastructure. Station1 collaborates with partners worldwide, including socially-minded startup companies, established industries, the social and public sectors, and academia.

Generally, I am extremely passionate about utilizing computer science to enhance solar energy. Additionally, I would love to work right at the intersection of innovation in solar energy with other fields like 5G, cyber and national security, electric grid systems, advanced military technology, and all the like! Truly, I am very honored and delighted to have been a part of Elateq and play a role in programming their controller unit.”
Grace JimenezStation1 Fellow 2022
“As a student of Santa Monica College for Environmental Engineering, and as well as a first-generation, lower middle class Latina student, I strive to educate and create a group of like-minded individuals who understand the power of community and how it can be utilized to build solutions to the social and technical problems the world faces today and make these solutions sustainable for future generations. The work I have done with Elateq was truly been an incredible experience. Understanding how Elateq’s innovative technology works has given me so much hope in the future of sustainability, especially for water resources.”
