Educators: Request Water Testing Kits for the 2017-2018 School Year!


To continue to provide Operation Water Drop (OWD), Operation Water Pollution (OWP) and Operation Water Biology (OWB) kits to elementary schools and high schools in your area, we will be applying for funding from corporations and other organizations. We would like to obtain an estimate of the number of educational kits desired by each school. By knowing the demand for sponsored kits in different geographic areas, we will be able to more effectively apply for appropriate funding amounts. Please forward this e-mail to any other teachers who may be interested in our kits.

 

We send approximately 700 sponsored educational kits to schools every school year and have sent educational kits to over 2,600 different schools and other institutions. Request sponsored kits for your students to use during the 2017-2018 school year. See a map of where our kits have been used.
If your school would like kits, please visit www.safewater.org/sponsored-kit-request-form to fill out the request form (it only takes about three minutes!) and we will do our best to supply your school with sponsored kits.
Elementary Operation Water Drop kits make it possible for students to test their local drinking water and control water samples for 8 different components (alkalinity, ammonia, colour, copper, pH, sulphate, total chlorine, and total hardness). Then they compare their results to the Guidelines for Canadian Drinking Water Quality.

These kits are recommended for students in grades 4 to 8.
Each kit is good for a one-time use with a class of approximately 30 students.

Operation Water Pollution kits are composed of a digital total dissolved solids (TDS) meter and a digital pH meter. These meters are guaranteed to be reusable for at least two years, so hundreds of students at your school can use them!

Students are given the role of different communities, which have different economic realities, and have to make decisions regarding water treatment.

The meters can also be used for other activities, testing (for example, as part of field trips), and many other uses.

These kits are recommended for students in grades 5 to 12.
