Metropolitan’s online water awareness merit badge program educates Scouts about Southern California's watersheds, water distribution and water quality initiatives as well as inspire water conservation actions. Troops are provided with kits that include worksheets, fact sheets and virtual reality goggles. Troops engage online with water industry experts to learn about careers in the water industry, experience virtual facility tours, and learn to calculate home and school water conservation audits. After each workshop, Scouts will have the tools to educate their communities about water conservation and stewardship.Register
Younger students learn that water is shared by plants, animals and people in different environments through engaging stories read by Metropolitan’s trained staff. Story times improve reading, writing, and communication skills. Metropolitan staff can work with parents, teachers and educators to select lively stories aligned with learning goals. Selected water-themed stories engage students with open-ended questions that foster critical thinking, logic and concentration, as well as cultivate a lifelong love of reading.Register
