Secondary

Deepen your students’ understanding of water through our programs designed for high school students. With a focus on engagement that highlights real-world learning, our programs showcase how we ensure South Australia has clean, safe drinking water and reliable wastewater services.

Sustainable Development Challenge

Managing our water well is one of the biggest sustainability issues of our time. Challenge your students to explore the urban water supply and sustainability issues, while understanding how their individual actions impact the environment.

This workshop develops students’ thinking on the three pillars of sustainability and asks them to question their own actions before designing a sustainable town incorporating economic, social and environmental factors.

A Story Well Told

Your students will enjoy a story well told and learn more about Earth’s most valuable resource. Our people will come to your classroom and deliver a 45-minute presentation on a topic of your choice:

  1. source to tap – how we get clean, safe drinking water to your taps at home
  2. wastewater – what happens when water goes down the drain
  3. desalination – a close look at our climate-independent water source
  4. recycled water – how we reuse treated wastewater
  5. a water utility’s environmental responsibilities.

If face to face presentations aren’t the right fit, we can provide video presentations to your class. We can also tailor presentations to the learning needs of your students, please contact us at thewell@sawater.com.au.

Young innovators and entrepreneurs program

In today's complex and rapidly changing world today’s students and tomorrow’s leaders need to build and develop problem-solving, interactive and social skills, plus their critical and creative thinking.

Water Education and Testing (WET) Kit

The WET Kit gives students the opportunity to learn about different water sources from across South Australia and how they are managed and treated. Students will taste a variety of waters and dive into water aesthetics. Using the kit, students will also take part in basic water testing to see how water aesthetics are affected by the source. To secure your WET Kit, contact us at thewell@sawater.com.au.

Apps

Our free apps are fun and educational. Design your own desalination plant in Project Desal, ensure effective management our water supply in Operation Aqua, and swipe left and right to stop unwanted objects from going into the toilet in Let the Poo Thru.
