Wonders of Water Wednesday — After-School Class

From 2:00pm

Join us every Wednesday for water-based after school enrichment activities! 
The activities differ each week, so feel free to sign up for multiple! https://www.eventbrite.com/e/wonders-of-water-wednesday-tickets-118561792513?fbclid=IwAR27-OeL1vAPnc7n8OuXvnbxvFKkbYstpVDkCBfMG9ie0do5RIPeDE-3xE8

Schedule:

December 2- Hidden Water
This interactive program explores the concept of a water footprint as students learn about the difference between direct and indirect water use. Through interactive games students investigate how much water it takes to make many of the products they use every day and look at various menus to calculate the water used to create the food that we eat.

December 9- Discover California Water
Beginning with an exploration of our State’s water supply system, students learn about Santa Clara County’s water supply as they play an interactive game that tests their knowledge of water science and California’s complex system of aqueducts, reservoirs and water infrastructure.

December 16- Watershed Maps
Watershed Maps is a hands-on activity where students make a 3D map that demonstrates and defines the concepts of watersheds and point and non-point source pollution. Using just a piece of paper, markers, and a touch of water, students will follow along and create their own working model of a watershed. (Materials required – paper, washable markers, water, plate) Also available in Spanish
