Yr 8 learn to create their own Water Filtration Systems to discover Engineering and Technology Careers
Year 8 students have participated in workshops run by the University Outreach Engage program focusing on the topic Water for Life.
The workshops looked at 'Engineers without Borders', a program which aims to find solutions to alleviate poverty and discover sustainable developments through engineering and technology.
The students learnt the importance of fresh water. They then created their own water filter systems from provided filtration media. The students were able to test their filtration systems with dirty water to see which team was the most successful. Discussions with the university student presenters about University and careers in engineering & technology was a fun way to open year 8 to outside opportunities available to them in the future. Well Done to all year 8.
