Review:
Clean Water Science is a water purification experiment kit that includes filtration materials and all components necessary to construct a water purification column, a water still, and a solar pasteurizer. It addresses water filtration methods (including various filtration media), explains the need to control flow rate, and illustrates some limitations associated with water filtration. Experiments on distillation and pasteurization demonstrate other techniques for purifying water.

An admirable introduction to the science of water purification, its "green science" approach illustrates to children the worldwide pursuit of clean drinking water through desalination and other means. It covers the basic principles and techniques used, but also addresses the challenges/limitations to water filtration and purification.
