Does science sometimes seem a bit boring? Why do we need to learn about it? Why Science Matters demonstrates how the science we learn in school is important in every aspect of our everyday lives. Using case studies and investigations, the series describes the development of science and technologies that can improve our lives-or lead to new scientific challenges and controversies.
In Managing Water, we find out about the most vital resource on Earth and how it shapes our landscape. We learn the importance of water as a solvent, how the power of flowing water can be harnessed to provide us with energy, how drinking water is cleaned, and how sewage is treated. We also investigate the new technologies to combat water shortages around the world.
