Water Education and Testing Kits (WET Kits)

The WET Kit gives students the opportunity to learn about different source waters from across South Australia and how they are managed and treated. Students taste a variety of waters and dive into the details of water aesthetics. The kit also takes students through the steps of basic water testing to see how water aesthetics are affected by the source. Contact us to secure your WET Kit.

Smart meters

The installation of a smart water meter at your school is a real life opportunity to engage students with authentic learning. We supply the meter which makes your school’s water use data available, providing a local and relevant area of study for your students.

A smart meter records water use at regular intervals and communicates this as data to an online portal enabling water consumption patterns to be monitored and analysed. Having a smart meter brings STEM to life into your classroom.
Contact us to talk to us about getting a smart meter installed at your school.
