Water is essential to life! But an insufficient or excessive amount can cause devastation.
This workshop explores rivers and the water cycle and examines the issues of water management, particularly flood prevention. It uses a model of a river system to demonstrate the effect on housing of prolonged rainfall and flash flooding.
The issues can be demonstrated more effectively by combining this workshop with an educational visit to Bersted Park estate conservation areas to see the measures taken to prevent flooding to houses built on low lying land.
Designed for 8 – 11 year olds, this workshop caters for 30 children.
£80 for 1 workshop
