Dear Sir,

for the second year in our high school the special course for the second grade, age 16, is lead by four teachers under the title Drinking Water - the Challenge of Today. The main objective is to increase the interest and awarness for this problem from various points of view. Therefore through the interdisciplinary approach students are incouraged to present their own contributions to the topic. At the beginning of February some contributions were posted on English site of the school web page, the new will be added along with the course:

It was not done according to the ICY protocole. We hope the form is not as significant as the topics and the objectives.
