At the final review after the teleconferencing, the coordinator from North Dakota State University said that the projects presented were interesting and seemed to be sustainable.

Rediscovering Water is an International initiatives of North Dakota State University of USA for popularising methods of Science among the school children.

The programme was aimed at stimulating research in water and wastewater and train the young generation with the skills necessary to carry out scientific research to purify water and make it available to mankind and others in the environment.

The programme facilitates some basic research globally so as to come up with a design to treat human urine and greywater (water from baths, sinks, and washing machines) in order to make the finished water drinkable.

The project explores Wastewater Recycling possibilities using standard Engineering Process Design.

Children participants in the project were taught how to work in a group environment, how to carry out scientific research, data collection, analysis, interpretation and design a treatment system to treat wastewater.

Participating in a teleconferencing organised by North Dakota State University, the team of children researchers from Kendriya Vidyalaya and Tezpur University earned accolade for their presentation on ‘use of blue-green algae to remove unwanted salt in water in order to reduce alkalinity’ and treatment development.

The team of children scientists were coordinated by Tezpur University in the teleconferencing.

Similarly, two teams of children scientists who were coordinated by Society for Socio-economic Awareness and Environment Protection (SSEAEP), made presentation on their work in the teleconferencing which was held in NIC conference hall in Nagaon.

The teams were from Sankardev Sisu Bidya Nekaton and Nowgong Bengali Girls’ High School.

Bidya Niketan team made presentation on designing a filtration processing through improvisation of traditional sand, stone and charcoal filters, soft sand, activated carbon, rough sand, pebbles, stones, filter paper used for iron, turbidity and hardness removal, lime, salt, Kolakhar and filter paper used for bacteria treatment.

The Begali Girls’ High School team made presentation on ‘Iron Removal from water collected from tube well using charcoal'.

They gave excellent answers to probing questions from the coordinator of the teleconferencing based in North Dakota University regarding source of charcoal.

Setting the ball rolling for the teleconferencing, Dean Faculty of Engineering Sciences of North Dakota State University, Prof. Gary Smith said, "This is an initiative to develop a young scientific brigade all over the world who can solve different environment related problems faced by the human beings through different scientific approaches.”

Prof Mihir Kumar Choudhury, VC of Tezpur University in his comments during the tele-conference appreciated the initiative and interesting research approach to inculcate method of science among young children.
