Water is a necessary part of life, but unfortunately, we don’t always have safe access to it. Graduate environmental engineering students will be sharing their knowledge about water accessibility, water treatment, nanotechnology, and how they are all related. Through a combination of presentations, activities, and website exploration, students will engage with the ideas of next-generation materials to ensure safe water access for all. We will answer questions like how much water do we actually have access to, and what makes a good water filter, and what even is nanotechnology and why would we use it? At the end of the session, students will be pioneers in the field of nanotechnology enabled water treatment!
Open to Pathways students in Grades 6-8. A computer is required, as we will be using Zoom, as well as Kahoot and PollEverywhere.com. Registration required at onha.yale.edu/newt2020.
