The Science of Water Filtration

The World Health Organisation states that 844 million people lack even a basic drinking-water service, including 159 million people who are dependent on surface water, with at least 2 billion people globally using a drinking water source contaminated with faeces.

This shocking news has stirred senior school students to investigate solutions to this terrible situation by building and testing water filtration systems using some of the most basic resources available.

It is hoped that the experience gained by our students will not only yield a solution to improve drinking water quality, but inspire young learning minds to think globally in the science of innovation and citizenship.
