What should you do?
Use legos to make a device that will tell you when to stop filling up the bathtub. Your creation must measure 2-4 inches of bathwater depth. It does not matter what kind of Legos you use. They can be regular size legos or Duplo-sized, as long as they are the Lego brand. Take a picture or shoot video of your creation with a small description. After you have created your Lego device, please submit your creations by posting to social media with the hashtag #whateverfloatsyourlego
Why should you do it?
- This prevents us from wasting fresh water in the bath or shower.
The more water you use, the more water that needs to be cleaned, transported, and then recycled. Not using too much water saves energy and resources.
This is an easy way for kids to be involved in conservation.
Kids love to build with Legos!

- Our team name is Eagle Tech. We are a team competing in the First Lego League competition.
- The theme this year is Hydro Dynamics. As a part of the competition, we are looking at a problem. The problem is to look at ways to improve the ways people find, transport, use, or dispose of water.
Our team is looking at the ways people use water in bathtubs/showers.
We are trying to figure out how to tell people that they need to conserve water when taking baths. Our solution is to ask people to create a small LEGO toy to make it fun to measure the water level in the bathtub so it is not overfilled. We would like this video to be spread through social media so that more people can see it.
