Desalination Design Challenge: 03 Focus on Filtering

In this lesson, students will review different types of filters that are used around the world. They will then design a water filter that they’ll build and test with muddy water, using the information on biomimicry and sustainability from Lesson 2. Students will wrap up the lesson by working with their partner to compare sketches and create one final design proposal that uses the best ideas from each partner’s drawing.
