For the design and engineering class we created a water station that could be used around the world. We had four days and a twenty dollar budget to brainstorm and create a station that would be easy to use and simple to build. So we decided to recreate the water station we saw in the video below.

I enjoyed this project a lot because it has a bigger meaning to me than just any school project. Being form Paraguay where the water usage and sanitation issues are severe, it got me excited to create something that could help the problem. This project provided an simple solution to a big problem that has a huge impact on people. I’m glad I got the chance to do this project. I hope to travel to countries around the world to places in need of assistance and help teach them how to build these water stations.

Below is a slideshow explaining the process of what was done to create this station.
