Water Ambassador Program

Please call or email if you would like the Water Ambassador Educators to come to your school!

The water education presentations and activities are FREE of charge.

The Water Ambassadors Program is a water education program serving the South Denver Metro area since 2009.  We will be continuing our work into next school year, offering water education to students in the South Metro region in whatever format necessary to support schools and educators.  Please let us know how we can help!  We are happy to provide adapted or remote educational experiences and activities as requested during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The program empowers students to make wise choices about how they use water through engaging, interactive classroom presentations. The program has recently been updated to reflect the changes in academic expectations and teaching methods.

Presentations provide in-depth information about local water challenges and solutions by exploring how water moves and is captured for urban use both regionally and, specifically, here in the South Metro area. Presentations are designed for classroom-size groups and can be customized to complement classroom learning goals. All presentations are FREE. The Water Ambassadors Program is also happy to support special projects.

K – 2nd grade

Water, Water Everywhere

Water is all around us — in our homes, our communities, and in the natural environment. How do the sun and water interact to create weather, and how do we capture that water to use in our daily lives? 2nd grade students will also explore how weather impacts water levels, using maps to analyze how weather and water impact Colorado food production.

3rd – 5th grade

Where Does My Water Come From?

Where does the water in our homes and schools come from? By looking at where water is located on Earth, students start to explore how water is distributed in Colorado and the implications to our growing population. Students will also explore how water is moved from one place to another and the challenges of water scarcity.

6th – 8th grade

Natural and Urban Water

The water cycle is a natural phenomenon, but humans also play a role in how water moves through our communities. Students explore the complex relationship of water, weather, and land formations to create watersheds. Students begin to evaluate how we use water and our impacts on the natural and urban water systems.

Colorado Water

Students explore where water is most abundant in Colorado and the role the natural environment and man-made infrastructure play in moving the water to where people live. Students will also develop ideas for ways they have the power to impact the urban water system.
