WaterPod Makes Seawater
Drinkable I love the sea… Blughh! But I hate getting
seawater in my mouth! Eww! It tastes
horrible! 大海景色優美又好玩，但是海水的味道真的很糟糕。 Yuck!
Seawater is really salty. Not only does it taste
really bad, it will actually make you even more thirsty! There's just too much
salt in it for our bodies. So no matter how thirsty you are, never drink from
the sea! 海水很鹹，不只難喝，還會讓你更口渴，因為我們的身體沒有辦法處理那麼多鹽。
We have so much water on earth, but 97% is salty
seawater that we can't drink. 地球有很多水但是97%是不能喝的海水。
Now, some students from Malaysia have come up with
a great idea. They invented something really cool called a
This WaterPod floats on the sea, sucks up water,
and takes out the salt! People can then come to the WaterPod and pump out
fresh water! 這個WaterPod漂浮在海面上，過濾海水中的鹽分，變成淡水。
If they can make more WaterPods, they could help
so many people that live near the sea but don't have easy access to clean,
fresh water that they can drink. 要是能夠做出很多WaterPod,那些住在海邊的人就有乾淨淡水可以喝了。
This is a really great invention! ________________________________
1. Salt 鹽。 Why is there salt in seawater?
為什麼海水裡有鹽？ I think the salt comes from the stuff washed into
the sea. 我想鹽是來自被沖進海水裡的物質。
2. Seawater 海水。 So we shouldn't drink seawater at all?
所以我們完全不該喝海水？ No, it's not a good idea.
3. Invent 發明, invention 發明。 The WaterPod is a useful invention.
WaterPod是很有用的發明。 I hope I can invent something useful.
