At this event, students will discover the important role water plays in their lives and community through hands-on activities and demonstrations. Presentations from a variety of local, state and federal organizations will demonstrate the many aspects of water, including precipitation, watersheds, groundwater, the role of water in fire management, and how water gets to and from our homes and schools.
Presenters are from Los Alamos National Laboratory, the Bradbury Science Museum, Valles Caldera National Preserve, Bandelier National Monument, New Mexico Wildlife Center, Army Corps of Engineers at Abiquiu Lake, PEEC and the Department of Public Utilities. UNM-LA and the Los Alamos Public Schools have graciously made facilities available for this event.
