EDP Steps Used In This Activity



Youth prepare presentations to communicate their water reuse process to others.

Quick Tips

1. An authentic audience inspires more thought in presentations. Pull in random members of your organization, if needed.

2. Consider again if using a different room:

  • Have paper towels & a sink handy
  • To avoid stains, set pH strips on paper towels

Science Reflection

Today we communicated our water reuse process and how we used an EDP to design it.

Key Take Away

We can communicate how we designed our water reuse process using an EDP.
