This is a video about a solar still Nick and I built with our students at our technical school.

The first day it distilled 1.75L of water.

With the prototype finished, we're redesigning the model trying to increase the output and integrating the solar still into four other classes at our high school.

This project aims to:
1) Educate students on solar distillation
2) Teach students necessary skills to accomplish a construction project
3) Convey the potential of solar distillation as a freshwater solution for Cape Verde.

If the output is increased to make the project cost-effective, micro-scale solar stills could provide an economic solution to the nationwide drought problem in CV.

We will see.
