On Your Marks, Get Wet, Ready, Go!

Gear-up and get the word to teachers in your community

Feb 22, 2011

The Global Water Experiment has now released a website to help focus and manage that IYC global activity. Please visit and bookmark

In just one month, on 22 March, which is World Water Day, the website will be completely functional, allowing participating schools to submit their data online and share their findings with others.

As you know from previous updates, Water–A Chemical Solution: A Global Experiment is an IYC 2011 activity designed to unite students around the globe in participating in activities that highlight the role that chemistry plays in issues of water quality and purification.

Details on the four experiments that have been developed are available at
In addition, a poster explaining the experiment is now available from the activity page.

At this time, the team encourages everyone to gear-up and get the word to teachers in your community.
