With the eruption of the Pandemic Ciencia Al Tiro rose to the challenge generating two education videos on the Pandemic; En época de Pandemia y Pandemia 2020
As 2020 ended we felt an urgent need to return to our water project (Water: The Root of Life) and were joined (via ZOOM) by the Brigada de Medioambiente from Escuela Básica Pacífico of Playa Ancha with Professor Nuvia Carrasco. With these students we completed activities on the water cycle and even did water testing together on-line.
Through these workshops we were confronted with simple questions of Where does our water come from? Why does my water come in a truck? Why do I have to boil my water? Spurred on by these questions the summer has been dedicated to filming: interviewing professionals, visiting Los Aromos to see and test the water we drink, recording plants killed by tap water in Quintay, and visiting the last uncontaminated river basin of the once mighty Aconcagua River (Parque Andino Juncal).
The video has turned into a fascinating project. We will be joined once again by the students in April to analyze the information.
