Abstract

Approximately one billion people lack safe drinking water and are unable to live fully functional lives due to the dangers of the water they drink. Biosand filters are proven to be a successful, cost effective form of water treatment that have been implemented in over seventy countries around the world. Even with the level of success seen from biosand filters, many areas are still not utilizing filters. The study revolves around researching why the need for clean water is not becoming a response that leads to action. Previously acquired data from different areas in Central and South America will be used to find relations to learning with affective domain knowledge. The decision to use a biosand filter includes seeing a need, valuing a solution, and making those values turn into action.
