Take The Challenge

How safe is the water you drink?


Test The Water That You Drink at Home and School...

Investigate and find out if the water at your house or school is pollutant free. Report your findings and learn everything you ever wanted to know about water, and more!

Pollution is anything that shows up where it doesn't belong or in amounts that are too great, and because it is there, places living things at risk of sickness or death.



Why Take The Challenge?

If you are looking for answers to questions about tap water (tap water = water that comes out of a faucet or drinking fountain), you have come to the right place! By completing this project, you will be able to find out about where all the water on earth comes from, how it gets to your house, current issues about drinking water quality, and why it is important for you to think about keeping water clean.

If you want Take The Challenge, but aren't sure if you know enough about using computers or the Internet don't worry! There is a special group of links on this site to help you to learn all the technical stuff you'll need to know to be successful.
