Water’STEM is an eTwinning project. The purpose of our project was to encourage our students to learn about water from a young age and make it a habit to use water economically.

In our project, the attention was drawn to every environment in which we are facing the danger of running out of water resources in the future. Also, to raise awareness about preschool education and to support STEM activities.

The objectives of our project were:

  • To teach students the importance of water in our lives from a young age
  • To provide students with information about water consumption
  • To increase environmental awareness about water consumption
  • To produce solutions to water problems using the STEM approach
