On February 27, 2018, we had the opportunity to visit Purdy Elementary School in Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin. We presented our Protect Wisconsin Waterways PowerPoint and demonstrated the Enviroscape model to 1st through 5th grade classes. We reached over 248 students during our visit. Students were very engaged with the presentation, especially when speaking about their favorite waterway activities such as fishing, swimming, boating. In addition, the children were engaged during brainstorming sessions about how they can help around their house. During the Enviroscape presentation, children took turns squirting water on the model and explaining how “weather town” was similar to the rural area of Wisconsin around Fort Atkinson. At the end of our visit, the students continued with their regular lesson about runoff in science class.
