Pump it up!

When you don't have clean water 'on tap' you need to pump it up from underground. This video, presented by Ortis Deley, explains the science behind how a water pump works and why it is important to the lives of people in Bangladesh. 

Installing water pumps which enable people to have access to clean water is a good example of technology justice in action. Technology justice is about making sure everybody has access to the technology that is essential for life. For other examples of #techjustice in action please also take a look at these videos:

Marvellous microbes  Illustrating how microbes convert kitchen waste into biogas.
Beat the flood   Investigating the properties of materials used to build a flood-proof house

To explore technology justice further with your pupils please look at our technology justice activities.
