Water Fest wets appetite for learning - Project WET

For many of Lake Havasu City’s fourth-grade students Wednesday was a special day of learning at the second annual Water Festival held at the Island Ball Field.

More than 450 students were wowed by hands-on experiments that provided an interactive and fun exploration into groundwater systems, watersheds, water conservation and technology, and the water cycle.

The festival, sponsored by the city and hosted by Arizona Project WET (Water for Teachers) — a program run by the University of Arizona cooperative extension office — seeks to instill a deeper understanding of water in the earth system and Arizona’s water resources in young minds.
