Migration Headache – Act as waterfowl and learn struggles they go through when water isn’t present.
Water Filtration – Experiment with several items to decide how to filter colored water to clear water.
GIS/GPS: Know it! – Use GPS units to see how NRDs calculate groundwater levels from year-to-year to manage water resources.
What Plants Need to Grow – Use a water bead activity to make their own pocket seed germination bag.
and many more!
