Water Solutions: Past, Present and Future

An Arizona Project WET and SRP STEM Academy for 4th-8th grade teachers

An invaluable week of discussion, thinking and learning where we will explore using: 

  • Core Ideas
  • Cross Cutting Concepts
  • Science & Engineering Practices
  • Phenomena

You will be tasked to develop solutions to the question:

“If you were SRP, how could you use your 100+ years of experience to manage water for our growing desert city’s next 100 years?”

We will:

  • Develop and use models to identify parts of a watershed, simulate the effects of hot crown fires on runoff, and produce energy to do work.
  • Engage in argument from evidence to describe the relationships between surface water and groundwater.
  • Analyze & interpret tree ring data and relate the evidence to watershed management.
  • Construct explanations and design solutions to efficiently and effectively produce energy and do work.
  • Obtain, evaluate, and communicate historical information and evidence and apply it to discover solutions for the future. 

Only 30 seats available. You must apply to be considered for this 5-day opportunity. Submit your application today! Link below.
