ALCOSAN offers exciting week-long summer camps for grades 4-8 (Summer Science) and 9-12 (Clean Water Academy) that includes hands-on activities and field trips for students. Students, alongside ALCOSAN staff and other STEAM-related professionals, learn about the science and engineering behind wastewater treatment and protecting our environment.
The ALCOSAN Clean Water Academy is a weeklong STEM enrichment program that exposes high school students to science, technology, engineering, chemistry, microbiology, and math content relating to wastewater treatment.
Students take an in-depth tour of ALCOSAN’s wastewater treatment plant and laboratory. Each year, ALCOSAN collaborates with a local university, facilitated by ALCOSAN staff along with university faculty.
Students engage with a wide variety of STEM professionals including engineers, scientists, information technologists, and tradespeople from ALCOSAN and the university. Students will participate in hands-on lab activities as well as a special technology project.
