This resource introduces an understanding of water quality, what is it, how do we measure it and why does it matter. Young people are encouraged to develop data literacy skills through an understanding of water. This material was taken from our Webinar – Making a Splash with Data
Part 2 of the Data Education in Schools webinar on how to teach the SDGs on water using data and numeracy Looks at how to analyse the quality of pond water (including using Microbits or Arduinos to make a water quality sensor), STEM challenges to clean water, and testing sewage water for COVID.
