A fresh start with fresher water

Our Water Explorers started out with great enthusiasm. You had to see them to know how thirsty they were for something special and exciting to do.

We divided them into 5 groups after an explanation on how water is commercially purified and questioned them on how this could be done on a domestic scale with no costs. They then competed on coming up with the clearest water with their 2 litre water filters in the "Clean That Water Up" challenge. The group that won were thrilled to receive Water Explorer Badges. The lesson was most effective in illustrating patience and how a concerted effort will yield the best results.
