Yesterday Nancy heard a report on the NPR show Marketplace about playpumps. We all know that large areas of the world have scarce water resources and every year about 2 million children die due to a lack of clean drinking water. In South Africa they have found a way to use childrens’ playground equipment (and energy from the children) to pump water out of the ground. You can see their home page for more information. I’ve also posted a banner on the left side of my blog. Let me know what you think.
