Presentation High School Senior is Saving Lives

Presentation High School-San Jose senior Nishi Dharia was in the news across the Bay Area recently. Her 8th grade science fair project, a portable incubator that does not require electricity, did not win. As a sophomore in high school she revived the project, which is now saving the lives of premature babies in rural India. Nishi researched, designed, produced, and markets the portable incubators that utilize paraffin pouches that can be reheated in hot water.

We are very proud of Nishi and all Presentation students and alumnae who carry light into darkness, inspired by the example of Nano Nagle.
