High and Dry Solar Water Heating – Educational Kit for Students

Alice Torres must prioritize her time as two survival tasks weigh heavily on the HAWC team: re-establishing radio contact with Earth and mining ice from Shackleton crater to produce badly needed drinking water. Torres is torn between helping Plissken repair the radio and building a solar water heater with their sparse supplies to ensure the group’s survival. Students will overcome a similar challenge by designing and constructing their own water heaters and analyzing their results.
