Excelsior Students Learn Solutions to World Water Woes
7th-grade social studies students are learning about the world’s water problems and solutions.
One of the biggest problems is that many people in the world do not have access to safe drinking water. Students had an opportunity to listen guest speakers John and Julie Battern about their upcoming trip to Kenya, Uganda, Malawi, and South Africa.
They will be visiting several villages and teaching people how to make chlorine to clean their drinking water. John showed students how a motorcycle battery, salt, and a small device called a CPU can be used to make chlorine.
John and Julie will be bringing 50 CPUs to deliver to the people of this region. They will be providing updates to the 7th grade students throughout their adventure.
