Drip drop… drip drop… there goes water from your tap! Do you ever wonder where your water comes from and how it affects your local environment?
Last week we were all talking about this at Drip Drop Summer School in four fun filled days with over 30 children at Iver Environment Centre. Together we dived deep into the topic of water awareness and conservation helping raise awareness on how your dripping tap is affecting your local river!
The week began with Sarah from Affinity Water sharing a range of interactive activities investigating the importance of water for humans and the rest of the environment. We went pond dipping, played ‘what goes down the pipe?’ and the ‘river of life game’, learnt about water conservation, and many other things. These activities helped the children to develop their investigation skills and knowledge on water conservation and for example, did you know every time you flush the toilet you use up to 13 liters of water!?!
