F ROM VEGETABLES TO SOUP In Belgium some of the people grow their own vegetables We make all sorts of things with them We will show you how we made a bowl of soup with our own-grown vegetables.
M AIN INGREDÏENTS We made this soup with leek, carrots and courgette. We also used beef.
C UTTING THE VEGETABLES First you cut the vegetables. In really small pieces.
M AKING BOUILLON When you want to make bouillon for your soup you cook the beef in a bowl of hot water
C OOKING THE VEGETABLES Than you butter the bowl and cook your vegetables in hot water. That should take about 10 minutes.
M IXING THE VEGETABLES Afterwards you mix the vegetables.
Done, now you can serve the soup you made of your own grown vegetables.
A FIYET OLSUN Hopefully the soup was delicious. But we are quit sure our fotographer loved our soup.
A QUAFIN : WATER PURIFICATION STATION ‘week of the environment’ from 21 to 25 February 2010 Visit of the water purification station Aquafin 10 minutes from our school “by bike” Recycling water = sewage purification
P OLLUTED WATER This is the water that comes out of our sewers. They collect all the water in one big basin.
G RIDS Grids: they pick up the trash out of the water. In St-Niklaas they work with two grids to maximalise the effect.
D RIED TRASH In this picture you can see all of the trash that is picked out of the water by the grids. This is mainly dried leaves and branches.
O IL - AND SANDCATCHER rests in a small basin the oil floats on the surface of the water the sand sinks to the bottom of the basin easier to purify
S LUDGEBASIN This is a basin where they get the sludge out of the water. The sludge sinks to the bottom of the basin and the cleaner water floats away.
A ERATION BASIN In this basin they put bacteria in the water. The bacteria eat the dangerous substances that are not visible to the eye.
And at the end this remains. This water is clean, but not drinkable. They let it flow back to the river.
Before it is drinkable it needs a special purification. After this it is drinkable
