Nearly one billion people on our planet lack access to clean water and even more are running out. Have you ever thought about where your water comes from or how much water is available for humans on Earth? In this course, students will reflect on their own water use and how they can be a part of the solution to the global water crisis. They will even learn how to create 3D designs to help solve these global problems! As their understanding of the subject matter grows, students will work closely with their global partners through the exchange of video messages to develop a hands-on research project that shows the water problems each of their countries face, while sharing practical ways to address these problems and help bring clean water to the world!
