Kontakt Umweltschutztechnik e.V. on XING

without comments

Some of the readers of this blog are alumni of the environmental engineering curriculum at the University of Stuttgart. There is a club, called “Kontakt Umweltschutztechnik Stuttgart e.V.”, whose goal is to bring students, teachers, and alumni together in order to exchange ideas and thoughts. Check out the club’s homepage as well as the new XING group!

22 And a Beer

without comments

Oliver started the blog 22 and a beer. The idea is fairly simple: Go to a restaurant, order whatever that restaurant offers as number 22, take a picture, and write about it. Granted, this has not much to do with water, except maybe that water was used to brew the beer, but it was still fun! Here is my little review!

Really Cool Use of Water!

without comments

Sorry folks for not blogging for a while, but I was having troubles updating to the latest version of the content management system I am using for this blog, Word Press. I just solved the issue, finally, by temporarily de-activating all plugins.

Here is something fun: over at short sharp science they posted this idea of using water. I think it looks awesome and I want to try it! However, I am not sure if ther has been photoshop at use… ­čÖé

Fun with Chemistry

without comments

People, this collection of wickedly awesome chemistry clips has not toooooo much to do with the general theme of planetwater.org. But, of course, with science and the fun of experimenting.

It’s also this time of the year where in the chemistry lab above my office the 1st year environmental engineering students have their inorganic chemistry labs… which reminds me of the times when I took it, and the fun we had… with conversations like “Hey Claus, do you think it’s normal that there’s smoke coming out of the sink after I poured this liquid down the sink?” ­čśë
