If you were a raindrop, where would you go? Can you drink your groundwater? Fourth through eighth graders will have a chance to wrestle with these and other questions related to preserving our most precious resource–clean, fresh water–at the 2012 Lake Superior Water Festival on Friday, Oct. 5, at Michigan Tech’s new Great Lakes Research Center.
The Water Festival is sponsored by the Lake Superior Stewardship Initiative, Michigan Tech Center for Water and Society, Michigan Space Grant Consortium and the Upper Peninsula Environmental Coalition.
