Educational projects on new technologies for wastewater treatment and resource recovery in developing countries are not so common. For this reason, a group of early-stage researchers developed an educational outreach tool (ODT) including a selection of these new topics for primary school students in rural areas of Peru. Tangible materials like booklets, microbial fuel cell (MFC) kits, bottle filtration exercises and a demonstration of real applications during field trips helped to motivate and introduce those concepts. A self-produced video clip shows the consistently positive response of kids and teachers to the experience.
The project was a collaboration of Horizon2020 SuPER-W fellows (https://www.superw.ugent.be/) with the NGO Engineers without borders (ESF Catalonia) and the Peruvian governmental educational initiative UGEL. The booklet is available in English as well as Spanish.
