Straining Out the Dirt
Learners take on the role of environmental engineers as they design water filters.
Clean Water: Is It Drinkable?Add to list Details
In this activity, learners simulate nature's water filtration system by devising a system that will filter out both visible and invisible pollutants from water.
In this engineering activity, challenge learners to invent a water filter that cleans dirty water.
Filtration InvestigationAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners explore how engineering has developed various means to remove impurities from water.
Who Dirtied The Water?Add to list Details
In this activity, learners receive a labeled plastic film canister containing a material representing a pollutant (i.e. pencil shavings = a beaver's wood chips).
Low-Tech Water Filter for High-Impact Clean
In this activity, learners consider the water features they might enjoy at a community park--a pond, brook, water playground (or "sprayground"), or pool--and what happens to the water over time.
Water Tower ChallengeAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners explore how engineers work to solve the challenges of a society, such as delivering safe drinking water.
