Challenge: Water


Challenge: Water is an exciting STEM based water saving initiative for secondary schools. It encourages young people to use their creativity and skills to develop innovative solutions to water issues in their area, as well as globally.


The programme has been developed by WaterAid in partnership with Affinity Water. This exciting key stage three initiative provides young people with the opportunity to collaborate and create innovative solutions to water and sanitation issues. They will achieve this by developing a product and behaviour change campaign, whilst competing against other schools in their area.


The schools taking part this academic year include, Challney Girls School, Denbigh High School, Onslow St Audrey’s School, Putteridge High School and Sir Frederic Osborn School.


The programme concludes with a celebration and judging event in May. Teams will have the opportunity to showcase their ideas to a panel, meet others to share their Challenge: Water experiences and win a cash prize for their school.


Students have been busy researching how their local community uses water. This will enable them to identify local water issues they aim to tackle. So watch this space for updates on their fantastic ideas!
