The Water Authority offers education programs to help build awareness of important water issues. By teaching children about our local water resources, our programs help instill a knowledge and appreciation of this natural resource and foster an understanding of the need to protect our environment and use water wisely.
Welcome to the San Diego County Water Authority’s Education Programs.
For more than 30 years, the school education program has been a core component of the Water Authority’s community outreach efforts. The goal of this program is to offer opportunities for students, teachers and the public to enhance their knowledge of key water issues.
The programs offered by the Water Authority enjoy a high degree of popularity with schools throughout San Diego County and help teachers meet their instructional requirements.
And best of all, many of the programs are free. Some of those include:
Teacher workshops on Water Quality and Water Smart Gardening
Theatrical Assembly programs for students
Splash Science Mobile Lab
Reuben H. Fleet Science Center water exhibit
Annual Science Fair awards
Although in-class presentations are no longer available, through grant funding by the Hans and Margaret Doe Charitable Trust, the Water Authority is able to provide the same materials, free, to teachers, that have been used by us for these presentations in the past.
We greatly look forward to your continued participation with our education and outreach programs.
