ALCOSAN Summer Science offers students in grades 4 through 8 an exciting week of hands-on activities and field trips related to the sciences of wastewater treatment and engineering. Each session is designed using Pennsylvania standards for Environment & Ecology as well as Science & Technology and Engineering Education.
Camp Activity Descriptions:
In a region as water rich as ours, it’s easy to take clean water for granted. However, in the developing world finding a reliable source of potable water is often time-consuming and elusive, with the arduous task usually relegated to woman and children.
This year, students in ALCOSAN’s Summer Science camps will employ ingenuity and problem-solving skills to complete hands-on activities that demonstrate issues of economic scarcity, climate, aquatic life and other concerns related to water during the week long camp.
