Grade 6 Lesson: Desert Island Desalination


As the human population continues to increase, engineers are challenged to create structures that help our community adapt to limited space and limited resources. In the film Dream Big, we see ways that engineers adapt our energy systems to no longer rely on limited fossil fuels. In this challenge, we will build on this foundation. We will produce clean, fresh, drinkable water from salt water using only the energy from the sun.
