Eau Secours des Eauvillois

Description

Producing and distributing drinking water: not so easy!

In the To the Rescue of Waterville activity, your students replicate each of the steps necessary to transform raw water into drinking water in our laboratory. Then, participants design a distribution and wastewater collection network while respecting the many constraints that are unavoidable here, as in your neighbourhood. It’s a fun and educational activity to discover water!

Choice of Activities

The C.I.EAU encourages teachers to participate in the entire activity, including the “Production of Drinking Water” and “Distribution of Drinking Water” segments. However, it is also possible to participate only in one or other of these two parts of the activity. Select the desired option when making your reservation.

Mobile Version

The To the Rescue of Waterville activity is also available in a mobile version! It’s possible to have a science facilitator come to your school or to rent a simulator and conduct the activity yourself. The mobile version is available for drinking water production only. Select the desired option when making your reservation. 

Schedule and Duration

The activity takes place every day from Monday to Friday.

A full activity at the C.I.EAU lasts between 5 and 5 1/2 hours, while a half activity lasts between 2 and 2 1/2 hours. The schedule varies according to the number of groups and the arrival times of each school. The in-school activity (mobile version) lasts 1 hour 30 minutes.

Capacity

Two groups of maximum 30 students divided into seven teams.

The C.I.EAU can accommodate up to 60 children simultaneously for this activity. Two groups will be formed and directed to two different sub-activities. Halfway through, the groups are switched so that all students experience both the simulations and the activities at the AquaLab.
