The SEQ Water Grid Up a Dry Gully water education program and competition for primary and secondary students across South East Queensland is designed to challenge students to investigate how water is supplied to the community- from the Source, Store, Treat and Supply perspectives.
Students are encouraged to investigate the source of our water supplies including the water cycle and catchment management activities. A good catchment ensures good quality water!
Students can also understand the various store capabilities that exist from dams,weirs and aquifers.
Treatment across the catchment and storages is also highlighted as a vital part of the water story while conventional and advanced treatment provide an insight into what is done to clean and purify water and provide futuristic answers to our water needs via desalination or purified recycled water.
The Up A Dry Gully Program is a totally integrated water education program.
The Water Resource Portal provides a bank of resources and activities to complement classroom experiences,visits or excursions.
Teachers though accessing the website are provided with a free resource kit of supporting classroom activities, lesson plans and fact sheets.
