Come to the Mead Public Library for fun with on Water Filtration! In this activity, students learn that of all of the water on Earth, only a very small percentage is potable, or safe for drinking. Students use this information as motivation to design a water filter using the engineering design process. After creating a prototype of their design, students test their filter by pouring dirty water through it. The process of filtration is tied to the physical properties of matter, and students learn how water filtration is used in the industry by scientists and individuals. Finally, students test their clean water by recording visual observations and testing the chlorine content of the water. Free.
