CAWST Wavemakers – Humanitarian Design

Given a scenario related to a real-world water problem, children are challenged to work in a group to use critical thinking skills to create a prototype technology that might solve the problem.

Students will learn what criteria are needed to create a sustainable technology and design a 3D model of a technology to address a given water, sanitation, or hygiene issue in a developing country.



In-classroom workshops are offered Monday-Friday throughout the school year.

Program Fees

Although workshops are free of charge, CAWST is a charity and donations are welcome.
