Water Management

WaterBOX

Learn how to create a Water Control Management system that delivers real-time information on water access and quality. It can also point out the origin of the toxins that are affecting the water quality and can be installed on water tanks to yield data on water consumption

Clean Water and Sanitation

Students are exposed to water and sanitation issues by creating a sense of awareness about the water and its use in their daily basis. We help them to identify potential pollution causes, water properties, and minimum water properties for drinking and farming.

Electronics & Water Quality

Students are exposed to different sensors to detect impurities in water by measuring properties such as pH, dissolved oxygen, temperature, turbidity, conductivity, and more. By using WaterBOX, students have a chance to build immediate and customizable solution.

Internet-of-things Application

WaterBOX is an IoT mobile water system. Students can use a customizable mobile app for reading and controlling the circuit. The system includes a web-based framework, a SMS device attached, data logger, and Bluetooth control.

System Integration

Students will comprehend basic electronic and programming elements, engineering design, and water properties. After evaluating the benefits of electronics, they can turn electronic components into a prebuilt water system, and then evaluate additional improvements by using a library with +30 sensors and actuators adapted to their own reality.

1

Students are enrolled
in the course

After debriefing with schools and/or teachers about their classrooms, we will help them to plan, structure, and recruit students for a course that can last from 4 to 8 weeks

2

Learn to evaluate
water properties

We designed contextually aligned and research driven educational materials, classes, tutorials, and videos to be used in the classroom and to support teachers. Students are exposed to water issues, engineering design process, and basic electronics and programming

Water System
Integration

Students learn to integrate components and build the Water Control Management system by themselves. With a large variety of additional sensors and actuators, students are encouraged to improve the system based on their own reality and local needs

4

Testing and
Evaluation

Students build and test a predesigned water system. They can test, evaluate, improve designs, share, and adapt to their local needs. They can use a customized Android app to read and control the electronic circuit

Water and Sanitation is a human right

Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6 is to “Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all”. But this human right has been denied for 2.1 billion people
