MHS World Water Day 2018

Manchester High School received another GAR Educator’s Initiative Grant!

This will allow teachers to submerge students in more activities to learn the importance of freshwater and how to protect it. This Spring, MHS students will participate in hosting a World Water Day Event, in cooperation with the Summit Country Metroparks, on Saturday March 24th, 2018 from 10am-2pm. The best student projects of the year will be on display in our cafeteria during the event. There will also be family activities and games to teach our community about freshwater. People will have the opportunity to control water collecting robots, experience water issues through virtual reality, monitor the health of a stream with a macroinvertebrate simulator, calculate their water use, and view videos on water crisis created by our students. Summit County Metroparks will offer two programs that day at Nimisila Reservoir, giving everyone in the area an opportunity to learn more about this magnificent ecosystem in our community.
