Stand Alone Rainwater Harvesting System
Rainwater Harvesting Education
by RainSaucers Inc. on December 4th, 2012

Back in September, we were given the opportunity to present our product to a fourth grade class at a local school (more pictures at our FB page). The teacher there had already taught the children about solar ovens and other technologies for developing countries. But she felt the lack of access to clean water was equally critical for the kids to understand-  so she asked us to explain the problem and how rainwater harvesting is one potential solution.

What a great experience it was! Great questions, great understanding of the problem, and an intuitive grasp of how the sun and rain power life on earth. The students also really enjoyed the RainSaucerâ„¢- touching it, drawing it, trying to mimic it with paper, testing its ability to catch matter and direct it to a center point. And judging from the essays they wrote us afterwards, all that experience with the product led to a pretty good understanding of the RWH concept. So now we know our product works well not just or for rainwater collection but as an education tool.
