Pipes and Precipitation – Sat. May 21: UPDATE

This event has been moved to the YEA Festival in Raymond Park. Find more information on the Facebook page.

PipesOn Saturday, please come check out the work students have been doing outdoors this spring as part of the Pipes and Precipitation program! Run like an open house from 9:30-11:30, there will be stations representing activities students did, and a slideshow.
For a second year, all third and sixth graders at District 65 have had expanded water units with Great Lakes and local-Freshwater foci through a grant from the IL Coastal Management Program.
 In addition to at-school model making and labs conducted by their classroom teachers, students have explored their schoolyards with local environmental experts and have visited the beaches in Evanston.
  • Third Graders visited the Water Treatment Plant on the Lake, the place where Evanston draws and filters its water from Lake Michigan. Then they explored the dunes at Lighthouse beach.
  • Sixth graders visited the beach for a four part field study: Infiltration, Water Quality, Litter and Data collection,  a Tag game, and Reflection. Bessie Rhodes and King Arts also visited the Wastewater Treatment Plant on McCormick.
Please come with your children and have them share their experiences!
