Filtering Water

Clean water is essential to life and is a precious resource in Australia for people, animals and the environment. Nature is very good at filtering water, but people have developed their own ways of making water clean enough for food and hygiene.

This program is intended to help children understand the importance of clean water to the ecosystem and the consequences of water contamination. Children will investigate the importance of water to the health of people and the world around us, through construction of their own models of a working water filtration system.
