Jefferson Water Festival

Around 700 fourth grade students attend the Jefferson County Water Festival each year. They participate in three hands-on classroom activities to learn about their drinking water and better understand where it comes from and how to keep it clean. When funding allows, they also see a conservation-themed magic show that ties together all the concepts presented in the classrooms. Edible Aquifer explains both the components of and water movement through an underground aquifer in a memorable manner. Fantastic Filtration offers great group learning with an applied experiment demonstrating water filtration like in a treatment facility. Lastly, Water Cycle Bracelets provide a visual diagram of how water continuously cycles through our environment. UAB School of Education 901 13th Street South Birmingham, AL 35294
