3 Reasons Why Your Students Will Love (and Learn from) the Water Bureau’s School Assembly Program

Portland-area teachers: Are you looking for a creative way to bring science and fun into your students’ curriculum?

Water The Musical

Well, look no further! The Water Bureau offers three, FREE, and creative school assembly programs designed to capture the attention of even your most energetic student. Our assembly programs are an easy way to compliment your STEM curriculum with a high-quality learning. Here’s three reasons your students (and fellow teachers) will love (and learn from) our assembly programs.

Puppet Power!

TEACH magazine says, “When puppets talk, children listen.” Professor Drop and the Droplets brings the excitement of exploration and adventure directly to a room full of captivated children. Using interactive science instruction mixed with a generous helping of fun, music, and humor, this 25-minute show opens eyes and engages young minds.

Science by Story

A mechanical engineer turned storyteller/dancer/musician/kid-at-heart, Rick Huddle combines catchy tunes, zany facial expressions, and good old-fashioned silliness to get kids excited to learn about Portland’s unique water system and how to use a precious resource wisely.

Adventure with Rick in Where Did the Water Go to find out where water goes on its day-to-day journeys.

Drama, drama, drama!

And Water – The Musical brings lots of it. This two-person musical puts its soundtrack to work, expertly weaving together “stuck-in-your-head” musical numbers with a sprinkling of pop culture references (think Stranger Things and Hamilton). Your students will love this 30-minute set of non-stop movement, music, and information education about Portland’s drinking water.
