Read the latest news on the Water Filter Project



The Water Filter Project

I have worked through it with four different schools, all year six pupils. All of my Head teachers requested a more formal, structured approach to building the supporting tower for the funnel.
 
This takes about two hours, the filtration input and competition 11/2 hours in the afternoon and the structures, materials taught element up to one hour, as the time safety valve for rounding up the morning session.
 
It was a really busy day, needing good organisation and classroom technique but thoroughly enjoyed by all. We had parents in for the latter part of the day for prize giving etc.
 
I ran a District two hour introduction session, and most clubs that will participate look to doing it in the new school year. I would recommend that clubs starting out use the bridge project as it is more time manageable.
