Students attend Groundwater Festival

On Friday, every fourth grade students in the county would have said science tasted like vanilla ice cream, Sprite and sprinkles as they constructed and ultimately consumed edible aquifers during this year’s Groundwater Festival.

Held at LBW Community College, the annual event is hosted by the Conecuh-Sepulga Clean Water Partnership. This year’s theme was “Give Water a Hand,” created by Straughn Elementary School student Linden Honiker.

This event is held to teach fourth graders the value and importance of groundwater resources. Students participated in exercises such as constructing water cycle bracelet and discussing how important water is to our world and our bodies.
