Desalination Design Challenge Overview

In this unit, students will be introduced to issues surrounding water availability and they’ll use the engineering design process to evaluate both water filtration and desalination as solutions to global challenges. By considering how nature filters out salt, and by using the lens of green chemistry, students will form a fresh perspective on water sustainability and learn how they can use their own creativity to solve real-world problems.
