Rao claims her own lead detector is pretty much faster than other lead detectors out there.

Rao's invention was inspired by the water crisis in Flint, Michigan, where cost-cutting measures led to contaminated drinking water by lead and other toxins.

The fair won her a $25,000 prizewhich Rao already has made plans on how to use it: "I plan to use most of it in developing my device further so that it can be commercially available soon," she told CNN.
