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.
Live virtual field trips are available for TK-12th grade classes located within the Waterwise Community Center's Service Area.
Virtual field trips will last 1 hour with a Waterwise Community Center educator leading a live lesson with age-appropriate activities for your class. We are offering one virtual field trip every Thursday for the time being.
The programs below have been paused due to COVID-19. To receive the most up-to-date information about when these programs will start again, sign up for our Educator Newsletter.
Instructor-Led Field Trips
We provide free field trips to support place-based discovery of our waterwise landscapes and exploration of the relationship between people and the environment. Trips are 2 to 3 hours and include a Science or Engineering Lab and a collection of field observation activities.
You can also use the Waterwise Community Center to conduct your own hands-on, outdoor learning adventure. Contact us to check availability and schedule a time for when you would like to bring your students for a field trip led by you. We provide the space, supplies and even lesson plans, if you’d like.
The annual Earth Day for 5th grade students features hands-on activities about water quality, watersheds, and waterwise plants, and landscapes. Earth Day field trips generally occur in the beginning of April. Registration generally opens at the end of January.
