Safe Water Science: Lessons for Live

what is safe water science?

The mission of Safe Water Science is to use science education to raise public awareness of global issues concerning safe drinking water. This awareness will then lead to social action, outreach and service within local and global communities.


Four free-to-download enhancement lessons for use in middle school science classrooms, homeschool or church groups, and other informal educational groups. The engaging hands-on lessons provide a springboard/stimulus for social outreach and service to the community. Additional activity materials are available for grade-schoolers.
