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 where water comes from and how scarce the resource really is. We discuss and come up with ideas together of ways to realistically conserve in our daily lives! Presentations are designed for classroom-size groups and can be customized to complement classroom learning goals. All presentations are FREE.
Water is all around us — in our homes, our communities, and in the natural environment. Students will learn about where water comes from and will have a hands on look as to how scarce of a resource it is. Upon this discovery we will discuss ways to conserve water and will realize our choices really do matter!

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.
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.
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.
