DEBORAH BAKER GRANT & CURRICULUM SUPERVISOR SAN ANTONIO, TX   Water is life...pure and simple. But not "pure and simple" for everyone. Elequa is changing that.  As a teacher, I've worked with students on water issues for many years, the past two years with Elequa. With Elequa, the merging of technology with real-world problems not only engaged my students, but changed their lives in significant ways. Elequa is problem-based learning at its best!
