Project: Clean Water

Project: Clean Water
Project: Clean Water 2
As part of their environmental education program, Woodhull Elementary School students recently delved into the deceptively basic challenge of obtaining clean drinking water.

After learning about the water supply around the world, and the crisis of clean water accessibility in many areas, students researched solutions in water sanitization and filtration. Applying concepts that they learned, they were tasked with designing and using their own filters to clean contaminated water. Using microscopes enabled them to determine the quality of the water both before and after.

Data from the filtered water is to be submitted to the World Water Monitoring Challenge, a project of the non-profit environmental group EarthEcho International.
