1. What are you going to build (8th grade)?

I am going to build a water filter that is run by hydro electricity. Water will run through a basic filter then go into a kettle so that it can be really clean.

2. Why have you decided to build this object (energy transfer system) a working model (8th grade)?

I wanted to build this because in the world there is not a lot of clean water, and I wanted to think of way dirty water could be filtered. The way I’m building the apparatus might not be as efficient as the other big companies in the world, but I just wanted to create an idea that would at least make me think more about the issue. And the reason why we decided to make hydroelectricity power the water filter is because my group also wanted to create a way that water can be reused, too. It might seem dumb that were heating up water using water but I see it as a way to help the environment.

3. What materials are you going to need to complete your build  (8th grade)?
