Students had been challenged to build a simple distillation apparatus by using project-based learning. In these project of the apparatus, they were applied their knowledges and skills to look for an alternative replacement tools, plan, build, and test the functioning of the apparatus. A simple distillation apparatus was designed and constructed by students where some tools could be replaced with used goods, such as: (1) a bunsen burner could be replaced with an spirit-wall lamp; (2) a soft drink glass bottle replaces a Pyrex flask as a distilling flask; (3) a modified plastic bottle with alumunium tube and plastic hoses replaces a glass tubing as a condenser, and (4) a modified dynamo from car toys was used as aerator with source of electric current from battery, power bank, or electric using phone charger. The apparatus already could be used to purify sea water that modeled by saline solution. The distillates were clearer and colorless compared to saline solution and did not conduct electricity. Based on that, the project was improved students’ understanding and creative thinking skills on the distillation concepts.
