Just add water

This challenge pack is full of activities on the theme of water. Find out how to build a solar still, how to filter your own water or how to make a water turbine.


With 18 classroom or at-home activities, including group activities and project ideas, Just add water includes sections on 'What's happening' to explain the science behind each activity. The activities and challenges within this pack can be used to complement, or contribute to, the Science and Art & Design sections of the National Curricula in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, and the Scottish 5–14 Guidelines in Environmental Studies and Expressive Arts.

We recommend that you consult the National Curriculum and the 5–14 Guidelines.
