SUBJECTS:      Water reaches all subjects!

This program will provide background on topics such as the state’s water resources, climate change and water supply, threats to water quality, how water softeners and iron removal systems work, where and how wells are drilled, road salt and groundwater quality, use of gray water, etc. ……. (see program detail on following pages).  We will also look at hot topics such as “Solutions to drought”  “The impacts of hydraulic fracturing on water resources”  “The pros and cons of bottled water” and “The limitations of water conservation as a solution to growing demands.”  With America’s population increasing by 7,000 people a day, water topics are central to many of the issues that our students will face in the decades ahead.  Let’s help them understand the issues!

 

During the program participants will experience hands-on demonstrations and will be provided with examples of lesson ideas and learning opportunities.
