‘Challenge:Water’ – a joint initiative by WaterAid and Affinity Water is now in its second year and pits teams against each other to develop real solutions to address global water resource issues, starting with their own community.
Team Cyclone from St Albans Girls School, were crowned the overall ‘Challenge: Water’ champions for 2017, winning £500 for their school. The team came up with an innovative and fun solution to help people shave minutes off their shower time and help save consumers thousands of litres a year with their brilliant waterproof speaker with LEDs and Bluetooth connectivity. The idea behind the product is that customers can challenge themselves to finish showering by the time their favourite tune is finished, which would bring it in with the recommended time of four minutes. The team also picked up the award for best product.
Marriotts School in Stevenage won the award for the best presentation; the best teamwork award was won by Stopsley High School in Luton and the best campaign award was picked up by Stanborough School in Welwyn Garden City.
Each school pitched their ideas to a panel of judges from across the water industry and the past Mayor of Welwyn and Hatfield, Councillor Patricia Mabbott presented the teams with their awards.
‘Challenge Water’ launched two years ago in Northwest London and the Home Counties, to encourage young people to come up with pioneering solutions to help people to save water. The challenge also connects schools with water experts in the key areas of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) and is closely linked to the national curriculum.
Along the way, the four teams have learnt how local actions can have global impact. During sessions, the children have been encouraged to use games, debates, films and activities to better understand why water conservation is such a crucial issue in the UK and around the world.
Simon Cocks, CEO of Affinity Water said: “I am delighted with Affinity Water’s involvement with Challenge: Water, a real life Science Technology Engineering and Maths (STEM) initiative. The students involved have gained valuable industry experience, enhanced their employability skills and used their creativity to develop innovative solutions to save water. It is important to inspire young people to consider the range of opportunities that the water industry can offer.
