In 2010, Professor Jose Guntin, Psychology at the MDC Kendall Campus, thought
about how a water clock would beautifully represent
sustainability in a water challenged world. It would require no
energy to run, it would use water as a source of energy, it
would bring the concept of time to human's sustainability
challenge, and it would be a monument to creativity.
Professor Guntin didn't know
what would happen, how it would work, or what it would look
like, but he knew he could rely on students for the particulars.
The Water Clock Project started as a simple seed of an idea and
quickly germinated in the minds of Professor Guntin's
The project is a process of discovery. What is sustainability?
what is renewable energy? How is water viewed in our culture?
How do we package water? Who owns water?
So Many Questions to
explore. And students decide what they will explore, how they
will explore and each year there is a new design and
modification of the project.
Now it is a club at Kendall and you can be a part!
