The Santa Clara Valley Water District believes it's never too early for children to begin understanding and appreciating their local water resources. And, to help promote that awareness, the district offers a full range of educational programs for both teachers and students.
From puppet plays for preschoolers to workshops for educators, school outreach projects provide effective, hands-on learning experiences that meet state standards.
Through the district's educational programs, students can tour a groundwater recharge facility or explore the plant and animal life in a creek. All activities are geared for specific grade levels, from pre-kindergarten to college.
As an additionional resource for teachers, the district offers in-service training sessions and free supplemental materials for all classes in Santa Clara County.
