Global Water Experiment
Teachers of all levels are encouraged to participate in the IUPAC Global Water Experiment, with Canadian participation taking place during our National Chemistry Week (October 15-22, 2011). The aim of the Global Water Experiment is to have students around the world explore one of Earth's most critical resources, water. The results of their investigations will be submitted to a global database, contributing to what may become the biggest chemistry experiment to date.
IUPAC has outlined four experiments involving pH, salinity, treatment and purification, and the construction of a solar still. All experiments have been designed to use materials that are widely available at little to no cost in order to minimize expenditure and maximize participation from countries around the world. We encourage you to involve your students in as many of the IUPAC experiments as possible.
