Our Education & Awareness Officer is available to support your water unit in your classroom with these hands on activities:

  • Water Cycle Stations – move around stations demonstrating the movement of water through various elements of the water cycle
  • Water Tournament – which water use is the most important?
  • Water & Wastewater Treatment - uses a coloured landscape model to demonstrate the urban water cycle – water treatment and wastewater treatment
  • Water Filtering – what contaminants are in our water? Students participate in a simple water filtering activity
  • Never Ever – a lucky dip of what should and should not go down our drains. How else should these items be disposed of?
  • Showerhead Efficiency – compare 3 different showerheads to determine the most efficient showerhead for our homes
  • Water Issues - students use cups and buckets to work through a scenario highlighting water issues currently faced

We can also present on a range water related topics such as water efficiency, water issues or water treatment.
