Budding environmental engineers work together to solve clean water problems through interactive investigations!

Students will learn about a team making flexible, small-scale water purification plants that can be used in rural and hard-to-reach communities. Using the question of where our drinking water comes from as the overarching phenomenon, students will explore the various aspects of purification, water availability, weather, and engineering as they ask themselves: "How can we provide safe drinking water to rural and hard to reach communities?" This integrated NGSS curriculum and activity kit brings Science & Engineering Practices (SEPs) and Cross-Cutting Concepts (CCCs) to life in your classroom. Teacher's guide includes flexible pacing guides that accommodate all levels, cross-curricular integration, and printed student notebooks.
