Year 6 and 7 STEM: Water Filtration

Water. Essential for all living things. Luckily, it is easily accessible for us at St Columba College, but what if that was taken away? How would the students of St Columba College acquire safe and drinkable water? This question was posed to the Year 6 and 7 students this term in STEM.

Students explored the characteristics of safe water and constructed their own water filters. They used these to clean the water that was collected from the lake next to our school. It was very exciting to see the students’ problem solve and use creativity throughout the unit.
