ARC FIELD TRIP PROGRAM
The WRD Albert Robles Center for Water Recycling & Environmental Learning (ARC) encompasses an advanced water treatment facility, a fully digital learning center, and water-efficient demonstration gardens. K-12th grade classes are invited to participate in a facilitated field trip that immerses students into a dynamic and interactive environment. The program builds on visitors’ prior knowledge of, and everyone’s daily connection to, the water cycle with specific attention to groundwater and recycled water. Students are challenged to analyze the information presented and use critical thinking skills to propose conservation and engineering solutions to the problems or issues presented. ARC also incorporates career development in which students and teachers will gain exposure to, and exploration of, water careers with varying levels of educational requirements.
