Affinity Water gives families a set of exciting environmental experiments to help educate children, parents and grandparents during lockdown

•    Simple experiment using pens, paper, measuring jugs. 
•    Regular new YouTube updates and content for primary school children their families and teachers

Affinity Water’s Education Team has launched an innovative new video series “Explore Water and Nature” with fun to do experiments for all the family accessible through the web to download and view. 

Aimed at primary school children the free educational videos offer a wide range of practical activities which can be completed in school or at home, with a water and environmental twist. They will brighten up the day for adults trying to entertain children in the Corona Virus lockdown. 

What’s more the videos are here to stay with a playlist which is going to be regularly updated on the Affinity Water YouTube channel. 

The trend setting activities include experiments in how to: slow the flow; spot the dripping tap; building a bug hotel; carrying out a home water audit; making a weather station; making a water clock; making a bird’s nest or camouflage caterpillars.

Hannah Battram, Affinity Water’s Education Services Manager said: “Affinity Water’s Education team has an excellent reputation with schools so we  have made these videos to help families and teachers educate primary school children on the use of water and the environment during the Corona Virus lockdown. All of our activities are simple to set up and only use materials that are readily available within schools and households e.g. pens, paper, measuring jug, cup etc. There is content to accommodate those with and without access to private outdoor spaces.  Have a look, have a go and feel free to share them with your local community. We’ll be updating the Affinity Water YouTube channel regularly with even more fun things to do. We’d love to know how you get on!”  

The new YouTube videos are part of wider measures that Affinity Water is instigating to help those impacted by the Corona Virus crisis, including payment breaks for families who are financially struggling and a new web link on the National Debtline website.
