Water means life

Throughout the duration of the project we have known a lot of secrets of water. Water is a vast notion so to understand it we need to put quite a lot of attention to it. We tried to consider everything associated with water- disadvantages and advantages alike, and its properties. We have not forgotten about curiosities as well.

One of the most important issues is water pollution.

The pollution of water occurs when chemicals, bacteria and microorganisms which are not water's natural constituents are present in it in the increased amount.
Hopefully, we were able to discover ways to save water such as taking a quick refreshing shower instead of taking a bath in a tub full of bubbles.

Another issue are conflicts of water.

There is a major international conflict between Ethiopia and Egypt for a long time now. The African powers quarrel about the Nile River.

The most serious problem which we dealt with was the water shortage in African countries.

Water scarcity concerns mainly Africa, Australia and Asia where a dramatic drought is present. India and Pakistan are also the countries where the temperature reaches 50 degrees Celsius, droughts are very common phenomena and a rainfall is scarce.

But we have come up with innovative solutions. Here are some of them:

We should extend the Nile River basin and dig new basins so water can reach the remotest parts of Africa.

We should create a pipeline that would provide water to African countries.

We got to know the water life and organisms that live in it.

Many creatures live in water. Some of them are hard to spot, others are water monsters. But water hides strange specimens of the organisms as well.

We also know the properties of water.

Of course, it consists of two atoms of hydrogen and one oxygen atom. There are three states of matter: solid, liquid and gaseous. It is a good solvent, too.

The best part are the interesting facts about water - so things that nobody expected to hear and which are now obvious.

How much water does it take to produce various goods?
1 kilogram of sugar - 80 liters of water
1 kilogram of paper - 40 liters of water
1 kilogram of aluminum - 1250 liters of water
1 car - 35 000 liters of water

Sports played under the water are also interesting:

Have you ever thought why ships float?

This is not magic. We proved it. Archimedes' principle indicates that the upward buoyant force that is exerted on a body immersed in a fluid, whether fully or partially submerged, is equal to the weight of the fluid that the body displaces. In simple words, Archimedes' principle states that when a body is partially or completely immersed in a fluid, it experiences an apparent loss in weight which is equal to the weight of the fluid displaced by the immersed part of the body.

It is amazing how much we already know. We encourage you to participate in educational projects like this one.
