Activities made in collaboration with:

Build an Aquifer

As a family unit or in pairs, children will build their own aquifer and examine the way water infiltrates down into the different underground water collecting zones in an aquifer.

Groundwater Demonstration

This activity demonstrates how water infiltrates into the ground and how infiltration is impacted through the different types of soil.

Cloud Jars

This activity demonstrates how clouds are formed during the water cycle.

Water Filtration

This activity demonstrates the process of water filtration by giving three different examples on filtering water through different types of soil.

Blue to Cream Gradient
 

Modeling a Watershed

This activity demonstrates the process of erosion from rain and snowmelt and how stormwater runoff flows down a watershed through storm drains in cities and neighborhoods.

Water Molecule

This activity brings water molecules up to size (human size!) by physically involving family members in simulating molecular movement in each of water’s physical states (solid, liquid, gas).

Activities made in collaboration with:

Water Charade

Children will explore the many uses of water by sharing their ideas with the entire family. Children will express their own opinion and also categorize and record the information gathered by the family

Build an Aquifer

Family members as individuals or in pairs, will build their own aquifer and examine the way water infiltrates down into the different underground water collecting zones in an aquifer.
