Students will learn the value of water, how water interacts with its environment and the importance of sustainable management. Through using an interactive river model, students gain an understanding of how rivers work, different components of river systems and how natural and human actions affect them - particularly in an urban context - and how we can apply sustainable environmental management practices to our water systems.
- Students will conduct water quality tests at significant catchment zones in the Garden and use their data to assess the health of the aquatic ecosystem.
- They will use topographic maps to describe the movement of water around the site and design water management strategies for the Garden.
- Students will also emulate active citizenship as they research and prepare arguments on behalf of community stakeholders in the allocation of water resources.
