Classroom Challenge 2018 - Cal Water H2O

10:03 AM
Water and trees are examples of renewable resources that are available to us. They should be used wisely; these resources provide significant benefits to the human being and all living beings.
However, if they are used excessively or are wasted, these renewable resources can be scarce to the point of causing catastrophes for humans. If we lack water, we will live very little time. That is why we have to conserve that resource so crucial for life.

So, my dear. What are you waiting for? Register for the Cal Water H2O Challenge and learn about water conservation with a project. Get involved with the 2018 CalWater Service H2O Challenge!. Teachers can register their classrooms through January 31. Grand prize winners receive a $3,500 grant and a trip to science camp. 

About Cal Water H2O Challenge’s Classroom Challenge: The students of participating classrooms initiate, develop, and implement a 4-8 week-long project (or longer at teacher discretion), focusing on caring for water. This class-based project explores water as a global resource and as a local resource, while tackling a local water problem in an individual and community-based endeavor. 
A handbook can be found at https://challenge.calwater.com/resources.html

My dear, conserving water is easy, and everybody can do it. At home, community, and school we can reduce the amount of water loss.
Here some water tips conservation:
• Use the hose only if necessary to clean an area and do not leave it open all the time.
• Wash the dishes without leaving the faucet open all the time and do not use too much detergent. Scrape the pots and dishes well before scrubbing them, and you will consume less water.
• When brushing your teeth, close the sink faucet, so water is not wasted.
• Check for a leak and correct them quickly.
• In the bathtub, while soaping yourself, shut the key to saving water. 
• Collect rainwater and use it to water the plants.
