Water Filtration Challenge

Water Filtration Challenge In-Person

Can you build a water filter using commonly available materials (popcorn, rice, hay, limestone, etc.)? Come by yourself or gather a team of up to 3 and join us for a fun evening of trying to create clean water in our Water Filtration Challenge! We will provide all the materials necessary and the dirty water, you just need to bring yourself and your creativity.  There will be two catagories: undergraduates or graduate students, faculty, and staff.  All are welcomed to participate. 

The event is free and registration is required with a deadline of October 10th. This is to ensure we have enough materials.  

Part of our 2023 Engineering Reads series featuring What the Eyes Don't See by Mona Hana-Attisha. Engineering Reads is a shared reading experience where members of the College of Engineering all read and discuss one book. The goal is to build community across students, staff, and faculty by providing opportunities for meaningful conversations about ideas, social issues, and historical legacies relevant to science and engineering. This event is sponsored by the Hanson Center for Communication and the Lichtenberger Engineering Library.
