Rain Water Harvesting Project
A basic rooftop water collection design
A National Science Exhibition was organized in our school last October. My friend and I decided to make a project on Rain Water Harvesting as it was very relevant to the current scenario. The main focus was on roof top water harvesting, the rain water can be utilized for domestic purposes by collecting the water on roof tops.
As we know that the rain water is the purest natural source of water therefore it can be used for any purpose.
Instead of roof top, the water can also be collected in small water reservoirs at ground level which could then be pumped into other parts of the house. It is especially beneficial for agricultural areas where there is a shortage of water.
Our project was very well received by everyone and we were awarded second prize in the science exhibition.
I think science fairs and science exhibitions are a must at schools. They encourage students to think of innovative ways in which they can make use of science. Even those students who are not a part of the science fair get to learn so much by looking at others projects and understanding the working of different models.
Another science exhibition is going to be organized at a nearby school and my friend and I have already started working on a project.
