The Global Experiment: “Water – A Chemical Solution” has been designed by IUPAC in cooperation with UNESCO and ICCA (International Council of Chemical Associations) to promote the International Year of Chemistry (IYC).
The video (produced by ICCA) titled "Water - A Global Solution," features students in Europe, the Americas, Africa and Asia engaging in the Global Experiment on Water, which covers intriguing chemical concepts, including acidity, salinity, filtration, and water purification.
Watch the IYC video produced by ICCA:
Throughout 2011, students all around the world are invited to explore one of Earth’s most critical resources. Participating students will report their findings on water quality and water treatment on an online map, allowing them to compare results and connect with other students around the world.
The experiment will possibly become the biggest chemistry experiment ever. ICCA is a key partner of the International Year of Chemistry, an initiative of IUPAC and UNESCO that involves chemical societies, academies, and institutions worldwide. ICCA members are engaged in hundreds of educational and outreach events in cooperation with chemistry societies, universities, schools and institutions.
