Prepare for your Field Trip Program

We look forward to your visit to the Waterwise Community Center! 

Prepare for your visit. Please review our Field Trip Tips to plan logistics and prepare for a successful trip. 

Orient students to the Waterwise Community Center. Orientation video coming soon! Research shows students gain more from field trips if they know where they are going and what to expect. For now, tell students about what they will be doing and consider giving them a sneak peek with our online campus tour.  

Correlate concepts. Research also shows students learn the most on field trips when they can connect concepts covered to their classroom learning. Check out our Supplementary Lessons for ideas on related pre- and post-trip lessons, resources, and activities.

Enter your students in a contest! Learn more about our Poster Contest and our WaterWise science and engineering challenge.
