Poseidon Education's water leadership programs bring hands-on real-world technical training to the classroom. We secure funding through water agencies and municipal program to educate and inspire young environmental leaders. We train and certify the classroom teacher to administer these 15-session programs that study water challenges in their local environment and to generate solutions for their school site and community.
Stormwater Quality Leadership™
This 21 session program introduces students to the environmental impacts of stormwater runoff pollution and develops technical knowledge and skills for future careers in the water quality industry.
- Students conduct visual observations, collect runoff samples, and analyze data from in-class labs and certified lab results.
- Students design solutions for reducing runoff pollution including structural solutions and peer messaging campaigns.
- Students prepare and publicly present their final recommendations in a Water Quality Improvement Plan for the school site.
Water Resources Leadership™
This 15 session program introduces students to water use globally, locally on at their skills site and develops hands-on skills for future careers in the water resource management industry.
- Students learn about the types of water and the agencies that regulate and deliver it, global water problems and novel solutions.
- Students explore the hidden water infrastructure at school, conduct a hands-on audit of potable water use at school, compare tap water vs. bottled waters, follow the path wastewater takes from the school site and use their campus to study school irrigation efficiency and runoff pollution.
- Students analyze the data collected to design water use reduction strategies and calculate projected savings, and then present their findings in a Water Resources Management Plan (WRMP) for school site.
