SEED WATER TESTING WORKSHOP 2011
" It's very important to test water because we use it in every day life."
These are the words of Mr. Simon Lim during the SEED water testing workshop held at Quirino High School, Philippines, on September 24.
He emphasized the reasons why we should test water and the importance of knowing it. Also, he performed some experiments and explained the phenomena behind it. And as he was explaining, we, the students, are really listening to him because we are so curious if our drinking water is safe.
After that, we ,Quirinians, also did an experiment. We tested tap water, pond water, and river water . And after an hour, the results of the experiment were there. Sad to say, our drinking water was not safe to drink because it contains some bacteria that can harm our body system, especially our immune system. Thus we will stop drinking from it.
We are very thankful to SEED because we had fun and learned a lot. We hope that there will be another workshop soon in the Philippines.
