Drop after drop ……let’s fill up the reservoir of life!

May 16, 2018

“Drop after drop ... let's fill up the reservoir of life!” is a project on how we can reduce water consumption. It is a project developed and managed by the students of the school to learn about the value of one of the most precious natural resources and at the same time to promote more sustainable strategies on water use.

Throughout the school year the students of the school actively participated in the project, exploring the theme of water in all its aspects and developing the most diverse strategies to reduce water consumption through.

The project supervisor Carla Antonioli hosted “Drop after drop ...... let's fill up the reservoir of life!” at the “Science Under 18 Pescara” event in "Sabucchi park". During the two-day event, the students told the project and presented the work done to the many students invited to the event and coming from other schools in the Abruzzo region or by participating live from other cities in Italy (Rome, Florence, Trento).

GBC Italia team staff (Eleonora, Maurizio and Clevan) played the role of support and sponsor, bringing together the supervisor and teachers for training and helping to facilitate the success of the project.
