Sanders-Clyde Elementary and Water Mission

Water Mission joined Ms. McCann’s 3rd-5th grade Engineering Club at Sanders-Clyde Creative Arts Elementary to raise awareness about the global water crisis and to facilitate an engineering activity. 

Sanders-Clyde students, teachers, and staff members participated in Water Mission’s Walk for Water on Saturday, March 26th.

In April, Water Mission volunteers came to Sanders-Clyde. The engineering challenge required scholars to design their own water filter with given materials (varying sizes of pebbles, sand, charcoal, etc.) to transform dirty water with debris into cleaner, clearer water. 

Scholars worked in teams to design their water filters and had the opportunity for multiple trials if they felt that their first attempt was not sufficient. Fun and learning was had by all!
