Project Description


Youth team (4-11 years old) working on a water hack in Sydney (remote).

What did we make?
We made a model of a playground we think the council should build hopefully you think that too. It isn’t just an ordinary playground it is a fun place teaching children about water. It teachers children how we get water to our houses, and things that affect this process positively and negatively. This playground is free and accessible to everyone. It is great for school excursions.


Data Story


We used water nsw to learn about how water gets to our taps.
We used water nsw dam levels in order for our lakes to mimic the actions of their corresponding lakes.
We used BOM rainfall to see and learn which lake should be on or off.
Lastly we used seed environment to learn what to teach children about our environment especially the water part.
