We all play a part in keeping our water and rivers clean and healthy. ALCOSAN has plenty of fun activities using common items found around your house for families to do at home.
Household items help teach kids about handwashing and how germs spread.
Bring out your child's inner engineer with problem-solving building activity.
Create a 3D-printed seasonal or holiday ornament using kid-friendly computer-aided design software.
ALCOSAN’s wastewater treatment process provides insects, such as the butterfly, a clean environment to live in among our waterways.
Create a volcano model with an eruptive reaction using household items.
Introduce your kids to "edible engineering," using pretzels and marshmallows to build two and even three dimensional structures.
Learn the science behind objects that are dense and buoyant and find out what sinks and what floats.
Illustrate how water is stored in an aquifer, how ground water can
become contaminated, and how this contamination ends up in a drinking
Clouds play an important part in the water cycle. Make a rain cloud sun catcher using household materials and hang it for everyone to see.
Students will be introduced to coding functions as they try to “crack the code” to predetermined puzzles using Google Forms.
Gravity plays a big part within the ALCOSAN treatment process. Test out different water bottles by flipping them with the right amount of water.
Most kids have made slime with glue and borax. Learn how to make plastic from milk!
Become an engineer and challenge yourself by building a Cantilever Tower out of only newspaper and tape.
ALCOSAN uses sedimentation tanks to remove fats, oils and greases from water. A Lava Lamp is a good example of how the process works in the tanks.
Instead of throwing away old t-shirts, learn how to upcycle them into chew toys for dogs.
Gravity is a constant in our lives, making this hoop glider will show you how gravity will pull it back to Earth.
Learn how to make your own carbonation thanks to a little kitchen chemistry.
We partner with over 600 educational organizations.
