AQ: Amazing Aquifer

“What is groundwater and how does it get there?” Together, we’ll discover the sources of groundwater, how we extract it and how we can protect it.

Activity Description

Using a groundwater simulation model, students will be encouraged to investigate the source of groundwater, how it gets there and how it is extracted for our use. They will also learn how pollutants affect our groundwater and how pollution can be prevented.

This activity centre is part of the Water Protection theme.
