Kid Zone

Teaching the next generation about our most precious resource

Our Kid Zone Schools Program is designed around the idea that teaching kids to be water-savvy today translates to water-wise adults for generations to come. Lifelong educated consumers are particularly important due to the common occurrence of drought. As conditions in classrooms continue to change due to the pandemic, we offered teachers our lessons in three formats; a personal visit to the classroom, a streaming virtual visit, or a teacher-led virtual visit. 

6 virtual presentations with support

31 live-stream lessons

149 in-person lessons

4,588 estimated student participants

8 standards-based lessons offered

Lessons in the program are aligned with the Next Generation Science Standards for K-12 content, created, and taught by certified educators. Funded by Zone 7 Water Agency and supported by its Board of Directors, the program invests in youth water system education and appreciation.
