Water for the World
Help pupils find out about access to water and build their own filters
Working in teams pupils explore issues around access to water and cleaning water around the world. This is followed by a hands on activity where they build their own water filters with different sets of resources depending on which country they represent.
The Water for the World Activity was designed to be delivered by university engineering students as a schools outreach activity but has been adapted so teachers can download and deliver directly in the classroom.
They are designed for both primary and secondary students and are suited to a 60 min or 90 minute session, but could be extended.
A perfect activity for a science or STEM club.
