|Water Rockets were a blast|
The 18 Annual WaterFest was held at Ijams last week. The one day environmental learning festival is all centered around the importance of water and keeping local waterways clean.
Hosted by Ijams and organized by the local Water Quality Forum, the event is a free field trip for area schools.
Some of the activities helped students learn more about water, and how important it is to plants, animals and the environment. Some activities had a big built-in "fun" factor. The children could watch a Water Magic Show and learn about the properties of water; they could shoot plastic liter bottles into the air at the Bottle Rocket station using air and water pressure.
It was a aqueous day for all. Special thanks to WaterFests’ 200 volunteers, vendors, teachers and parents for their help and support.
And of course, the 650 students that visited, had their faces painted, and shot rockets into the air… and went home with a brain full of water.
