Science Lab "Carry the Load"
Not all areas have indoor plumbing and in many countries people have to carry water from a source sometimes 3 times a day.
Students simulated carry one load of water in either a 15 or 25 pound load for 200.  Then calculated their time 3 times ( the average daily amount of time) by 365 to figure out how many hours are spent to bring water for everyday use in households without running water.
It wasn't easy!
