Abstract

Albania experiences many water problems despite having ample available resources. The goal of this project was to address these problems by enhancing water science education at the high school level. By working with SHUKALB and Harry Fultz High School in Tirana, our team developed and initiated a program of water science fairs where we mentored teams of students on model projects. In addition, we visited several schools throughout Albania to introduce the concept of science fairs and created a handbook on how to organize and conduct them. The hands-on exposure that the projects provided to students and the expansion of the program are positive steps towards water science education that can contribute to help Albania solve its water problems.
