Wissam Abdallah Chemistry Teacher Shajara School
It was really a great experience for me and my students. The global water experiment made my students like chemistry and enjoy experimental work. They asked me for more.
I’ll introduce the four water experiments in our chemistry curriculum and we’ll (my students and I) carry the Global water experiments year after year.
Here are some stories of my Students with the Global Water Experiments
Mostafa Ataya Grade 7B Shajara School
When I began the experiment-Solar Still Challenge- I felt myself a scientist in chemistry. I was really excited while doing it. The weather was sunny and I put my experiment apparatus on a high place. The aim of the experiment was desalinatin of sea water-to remove salt from sea water. During the experiment, water evaporated and changed into water vapor. When the water vapor touched the cling film, it changed back into water and collected in the cup.
We gave the desalinated water to our chemistry teacher who added to it, Chlorine, with a limited amount, not to cause cancer for people later.
Chlorine is added to kill bacteria and make water safe for drinking.
Mahdi Sweid Grade 7B Shajara School
The aim of the experiment was to desalinate sea water. When our chemistry teacher discussed the experiment, I get worried and that the experiment is difficult. But When I carried out the experiment, I was very happy and wished to repeat it many times. I told my teacher, that I wish to carry out other chemistry experiments.

On Wednesday 2-12-2011 , We performed a chemical experiment “ Water Purification”. It consists of many steps. We deeply hoped that the teacher repeat it again. We were pleased to hear that there was a chemical experiment and our teacher Wissam Abdallah will ask us to perform it as home activity. When we finished, we presented our experiment happily and we were proud because we carried it successfully. This is due to Teacher Wissam Abdallah Efforts.

On Sunday 4/12/2011, we performed a chemical experiment “ Water Treatment”. First we cut the plastic bottle and filled it with sand and stones to construct a filter. Then we washed it with clean water. After that we pour river water into the filter to treat it. When we finished, we noticed that river water seemed to be clean. We were pleased and hoped to perform
