Our mission is to empower students and educators who want to make a difference in this world by giving them the tools and a path to tackle real world water issues collaboratively.
The Make Water Program
We believe together we can make a difference in this world. There are many water issues facing our planet and it’s easy to become overwhelmed. Make Water created a program that helps you pick a water challenge that is within reach and has real world impact. Each year we give students an open source water purification kit that can be evolved in a numerous amount of ways and these are called challenges. Once the year is over students present their findings and the kits, curriculum, and program all evolve from their help. Over the summer we have a post season where we take what we learned and apply it to the kits and program the following year so it continuously evolves.
To turn everyday people into water literate citizen scientists who help solve water issues for their own community or others.
Develop an ever-evolving curriculum around DIY innovations that thrive on crowd sourcing solutions via our citizen scientist network and programs.
Combat community water deterioration and its resulting negative health implications by promoting community involvement.
Provide residents of disadvantaged areas with the training, equipment, and access to the curricula.
