Children raising both hands in the airCome visit the 19th Annual Waterloo Wellington Children's Groundwater Festival (WWCGF) which offers hands-on activities, discussions, demonstrations, displays and exhibits that will challenge students to consider the importance of groundwater to them as individuals and to society at large.

Students will learn about:

  • the physical science of groundwater

  • groundwater as a resource

  • the water cycle

  • the interdependence of people, plants, animals, soil, air and water

  • the results of the interaction between people and water, and what effects it has on the environment

  • the role of water in historic and contemporary processes and technology
