The Waterloo Wellington Children’s Groundwater Festival has been offering water education for 25 years! The Festival brings together the expertise of educators, groundwater specialists and members of industry and government to provide students with the opportunity to discover the importance and the diversity of its uses in historical and modern times.

Learning Opportunities

Through a combination of multimedia exhibits and hands-on activities focusing on the general theme of groundwater, students in Grades 2 through 5 will have the opportunity to learn about:

* the physical science of groundwater
* groundwater as a resource: management and utilization in rural and urban settings
* 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.

Special for the 2022 Festival, we have added a day of content that is appropriate for students older than Grade 5. This day will relate to the Grade 8 curriculum.

Water has played an essential role in the economic, social and industrial development of Ontario. As individuals, we depend on water for our very lives. Communities have developed around water sources to support the growth of commerce, industry and transportation. On a provincial level, our abundant water supply is a cornerstone of the success of our diversified economy, and has played a key role in our ability to create and maintain a standard of living ranked among the best in the world. The Waterloo Wellington Children’s Groundwater Festival 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.
