2. Is there really a problem?
Does the community thinks there's a problem?
We needed to investigate if there was really a problem. So we did interviews to the personnel of our school, the community and students from our school. The interviews done to community was made by ourselfs asking them directly. On the other hand the interviews made to students were made using the Thinkquest platform.
The two questions were:
1. Do you consider that the river in front of our school is contaminated?
2. Who do you think is the main responsible of contaminating the river?
