Water Discovery Program!
Students view pond life specimen under microscopes. For older grades, they will obtain and assemble their own specimens and slides. Younger grades will observe the pre-assembled slides. This activity encourages scientific observation and teaches students how to use a microscope.
Wastewater Treatment Plant Video and Scale Model (6-12)
Due to construction of IEUA’s Regional Water Recycling Plant No.5 we are unable to offer tours of the treatment facility at this time. Students will watch a video of the seven-stage treatment process, understand wastewater flows and where it comes from, realize the value of being aware of what is “flushed” down the drain, and observe first-hand through a scale model the essential process that helps preserve potable water for the region’s future.
