LIifeStraw poster water filter filter experiment

The CELCscience of Water event brought young people together for a great cause – learning about water – our planet’s precious resource.  Students were involved in a variety of activities, from “becoming” a water molecule to calculating the percentage of water available for human use to designing a watershed and more.  All of this was to raise awareness and raise funds for LifeStraw, an affordable water filter being used in parts of the world where clean water is not available.  The straws cost $5.00 each, can eliminate 99.3% of bacteria and other particulates, and can last up to one year of use per person.  We will continue to support this cause and to be conscious of our water footprint on this planet Earth.
