October 15th through the 17th WaterStep helped celebrate the Belle of Louisville’s Centennial Birthday by participating in the Centennial Festival of Riverboat’s, Adventures in Education Festival. The festival gave 2000 Louisville third through fifth graders the opportunity to explore various educational displays and demonstrations.
WaterStep staff, along with student volunteers from the University of Louisville, taught local students about the importance of safe water and demonstrated technologies to create and distribute it. The students learned about the M100 chlorinator and the played with the tippy-tap and WaterBall. Participating educators also saw examples of Quench, the new, free, downloadable curriculum being used in schools right now to spread awareness of the global water crisis.
