Project Description


We believe that our challenge Water – From Source to tap: is effectively met through the use of the interactive game that has been created. The game showcases the water cycle and how the water is being transformed through each phase.


Data Story


Throughout the game there will be learning milestones in which the game will incorporate statistics of rainfall over a set of years and produce a game with that presents how the weather cycle does change yearly.
The game also aims to teach the Upper Primary and Lower Secondary students to not waste water and that we should do everything in our power to save water. The game will also have prompts that the user can click in order to learn more about what happens at each part of the process.
For example:
Hovering over the pipe, will present data indicating per year how much water is wasted in a house per year.
Hovering over the cloud, will present the average rainfall per year.
Hovering over the dam, will present data indicating the average amount of water held by all the dams in Australia.
Hovering over the evaporation will present the user with data informing them about evaporation levels and how water is transformed from the ocean to clouds.

Water – From source to tap.

Ideas to engage upper primary and lower secondary school students (with advantages for community learning) in learning about the water cycle (source to tap). We want them to understand where water comes from (sources), the different types of water (drinking, recycled, classes of water), how and why it is treated (health), how we move it (infrastructure) and how we use it (drinking, cooking, commercially, fires, toilets, sanitation, washing, in the home). The ideas should highlight why water is so important for our survival. Ideas should be fun, interactive and educational. The engagement should be relevant to the Australian School Curriculum, adaptable to water organisations and schools around Australia and sustainable.
