The goal of this program is to address the ongoing need for clean, fresh water in our drought-ridden community. Students will learn about the water cycle, pollution, and the engineering challenges that will face future generations in the task of providing adequate and safe water for all of our everyday uses. We have been so used to the seemingly endless supply of water that we don't think about how much technology and work has gone into creating aqueducts, water treatment facilities, desalination processes and everything else that lets us get the water out of the ground or the ocean and bring it to our homes. Students will imagine what changes might be made to continue to do this in the future, and explore both potential careers and strategies to conserve water. This program challenges students to create solutions to address the challenges posed by the chronic water shortages faced by our community.
