THIRST Lab

The THIRST Lab provides a rich environment for the hands-on exploration of water: water as a resource, water as an ingredient, water as opportunity. Students are empowered to explore, experiment, and innovate as they examine water properties, quality, and water’s often overlooked role in the creation of everyday products; from paper to perfume and soy sauce to soda.
