Jake Plissken, the senior communications officer on the lunar outpost, has become ill. When contaminated resources are found, the HAWC miners switch to emergency water and food rations to avoid infection. With no hope of immediate rescue, they begin recovering water from any source necessary. In this kit, students will learn about procedures to recycle urine into drinking water and test their results for safety.

  2. Design and build an efficient distillation apparatus.
  3. Analyze purified distillate for salt, pH, and urobilin to determine if its safe to drink.

Learning Objectives
