On Saturday 7th¬†May, Water-WISER students Karl Jones, Hannah Ritchie and Lais Dos Santos took part in the Be Curious festival of science at Leeds. This is an annual event where the University of Leeds opens up to over 1000 members of the public (mainly families with small children) to come and get hands-on with science. It’s an inspiring celebration of public engagement with hundreds of activities on offer.
Visitors to Water-WISER had to hook poo out of a tub of water, while learning all about hand washing and research into water purification. The game was really hard, even for adults! Luckily all the children kept a laser focus on removing all the poo, patiently waiting their turn and with hardly a tantrum in sight!
