Engineers without Borders

Last week we had a visit from the Engineers without Borders, who came into school to run a workshop with Osprey class on the importance of clean water in developing countries.  Here is what they have to say about their work with young people in the UK:

“Through our Outreach initiative we aim to inspire the next generation of globally responsible engineers, engineers that know they can have a huge impact on the sustainability of our future and the well-being of everyone, everywhere.”  EWB

The workshop, ‘Water for Everyone Everywhere’, taught us about the importance of water in our every day lives.  We learnt about the consequences of not having access to safe and clean water, and how to purify dirty water through the use of filtration.  We designed, built and tested our own water filters using bottles, gauze and sand.  Take a look at how we got on.
