WHY IT MATTERS
The Safe Drinking Water Foundation educates students about drinking water quality issues and solutions in a hands-on manner. Students get the opportunity to test their own local drinking water and find out more information about its quality. This science project is so relevant and authentic that it increases students’ interest in science and can lead to students pursuing further science classes or careers in the field of science. Students are then supported and encouraged in taking action to share what they learn with others and to alleviate drinking water quality issues in their regions. We want to create these ripple effects all over Canada until all Canadians are informed about drinking water quality issues and solutions and have access to safe drinking water.
