Hi, I’m Irene and my work focuses on making water safe to drink. I am proactive in coming up with new ways to remove viruses, bacteria and nasty chemicals from water. I test bubbles, ozone and different cleaning fluids – things often don’t work first time but I am determined to succeed and like to solve problems. I love engineering as I can help create a better world.


Water clean up game

Irene wants to make water safe to drink. She develops and designs new processes for water treatment. Read the comic she has written to find out more about the steps of water treatment. Play the magnetic water clean up game, removing everything that shouldn’t be in the water and matching the cards to find out what treatment processes are used in real-life water clean up.
