Fiberpipe Sponsors Aqualibrium Schools Competition
Fiberpipe is honoured to be a proud sponsor of the 2012 Aqualibrium Schools Water Competition. Aqualibrium is a national school completion where teams from schools countrywide are tasked to design a model water distribution network to distribute three litres of water equally between three points on the grid using two different diameter pipes and connection pieces.
They are then judged on how well they execute the task – working on a penalty points system. They have a period of about an hour in which to design, build and operate their network. This competition exposes learners to the practical application of processes that influence their daily lives, which is how water reaches their homes. They are made aware of the intricacies involved in the design of water distribution networks and the actual water delivery to households. The top 3 schools from each region are sent to Johannesburg to compete in the finals which will be held on the 27 July 2012 at the SCI-Bono Discovery Center in Newtown, Johannesburg.
