    CHECK OUT OUR FUN & EDUCATIONAL FIELD TRIPS



    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.

    Currently, we are offering free field trip videos on Youtube and live virtual field trips to schools in our service area.
