Last Tuesday, the Portland Water Bureau took part in an extraordinary event called the Children’s Clean Water Festival.
The Children’s Clean Water Festival is an annual one-day environmental education event that brings fourth and fifth grade students, from around the Portland Metro area, to learn about water and how it relates to our world.
This year, more than 1,500 children from over than 20 schools attended the Water Festival.
The Festival provided interactive water-focused classroom presentations, exhibits, and stage shows reinforced by STEM, Common Core, and Next Generation Science. Staff from the Water Bureau also taught classes on topics such as groundwater, how to build a water main, and water testing.
