Every program is designed for all learners to immerse themselves in science and engineering practices. The unifying and relevant topic of water ties all programs together and is a phenomenon to explore through all of our cross-cutting concepts. Our team of experienced and passionate educators work to inspire curiosity and empower students to take waterwise action in their homes, schools, and communities.
Programs are free and transportation costs are reimbursable to schools in our service area.
Instructor-Led Field Trips
We provide free field trips to support place-based discovery of our waterwise landscapes and exploration of the relationship between people and the environment. Trips are 2 to 3 hours and include a Science or Engineering Lab and a collection of field observation activities.
You can also use the Waterwise Community Center to conduct your own hands-on, outdoor learning adventure. Contact us to check availability and schedule a time for when you would like to bring your students for a field trip led by you. We provide the space, supplies and even lesson plans, if you’d like.
The 28th annual Earth Day for 5th grade students features hands-on activities about water quality, watersheds, and waterwise plants, and landscapes. This year, Earth Day field trips will occur on April 1st, 2nd and 3rd. Registration opens January 27 at 7:30 am.
